Bloomington Police received a report Thursday afternoon of a man masturbating and exposing himself to a woman as she walked past his car.
The incident occurred at 2475 S. Winslow Court, which is the location of the Henderson Court Apartments.
BPD Sgt. Dana Cole said a 39-year-old woman told police she was walking east on the sidewalk past the exit of the apartments when a silver car slowly pulled up next to her.
Cole said she then told police the driver rolled down his window, said something to her and had his erect penis visible and was masturbating.
She described the man to police as a white male in his mid-20s, with dark hair, wearing a light-colored shirt and dark, baggy bottoms.
Cole said the woman walked behind the car to get its license plate number, before continuing to walk to her place of work.
She told police she had never seen the man before.
According to Cole, the license plate number identified a man in Martinsville, Indiana, who police are trying to contact.
