SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg police are looking for the man they said flashed a woman while she was walking along a local trail.

Police said the woman was walking along the Rail Trail near South Pine Street and Forest Avenue when a man yelled "hey" about 8 a.m. on Saturday.

When the woman looked over towards the man, she told police he had exposed himself.

Police said the flasher was standing in the wood line and walked away before they arrived.

He was described as about 5'10" tall, was in his early to mid-40s, was wearing a blue jean jacket, blue jean pants, boots, dark-rimmed glasses and a striped knit cap.

Police did not locate him, but they say this incident shouldn't stop others from visiting the trail. They say since January 2012 three crimes have been reported, all involving auto break-ins. More an a year ago a similar flashing incident occurred on the Rail Trail, but police say that was a different suspect.

"Don't be afraid to go down there, it's safe," said Capt. Regina Nowak with Spartanburg Public Safety.  

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
