Rolleston police are looking for witnesses after a man indecently exposed himself to a 6-year-old girl in a carpark.

Rolleston sergeant Chris Jones said the offender had parked up next to the girl in the New World carpark on July 31. The male Caucasian, who was in a blue station wagon, then proceeded to do an ''indecent act'' in direct sight of the girl, who had been left in the car while a family member went into the shop.

''The connotations are huge - it's disgusting as a parent let alone as a cop,'' Jones said.

Jones said CCTV footage had given them a suspect who was ''well-known'' to police, but they now required assistance from the public.

''We are in no doubt about what happened, the girl has been interviewed and she's quite clear on it.

''What we are after is if any of the public recall seeing it or recall this male at all and are able to contact us with a statement.''

Jones said the girl was a ''clever, matter of fact little girl'', who has dealt with the incident ''in her stride''.

Police are requesting that anyone with any information on the incident to call 03-347 9248.
