Dunedin police are appealing for information after a man was seen performing a lewd act at a sports field in the city yesterday.

Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said the man was seen masturbating in Prospect Park mid-afternoon.

He was described as white, 1.73m (5 feet 8 inches) tall, with sandy-coloured hair, and facial hair.

A man matching that description had possibly been at the park the previous Sunday, Snr Sgt Dinnissen said.

"If anybody has seen anyone acting suspiciously in that area please call police.''
