A MAN was caught on camera performing a lewd act in Gloucester.

Police officers are appealing for witnesses after CCTV footage showed the man performing the act on himself.

A spokeswoman said: "The incident happened at around 3.30am on Sunday, July 11, at the bus station in Market Parade, in Gloucester.

"The man was seen performing the act in front of a member of the public who was sat on a bench in the bus station. The offender then walked off in the direction of Kings Walk.

"Officers have since arrested an 18-year-old local man on suspicion of indecency. He has been bailed to return to the police station on September 10 pending further inquiries."

She said the member of the public, who had a large red suitcase, did not report the incident to police but said officers were eager to speak to them, or anyone else who witnessed the incident.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact Gloucestershire Constabulary on 0845 090 1234, quoting incident number 277 of August 7, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
