Police in Malaysia are hunting a man who flashes women while wearing a Darth Vader costume.

The Star Wars flasher exposed himself to women factory workers in two industrial areas of Bandar Baru Nilai.

Priscilla, 33, a factory supervisor, said the man got out of his car, strutted about menacingly in his Darth Vader suit before flashing to 15 women workers standing at a bus stop at 7am.

“At first, I thought he was a die-hard Star Wars fan trying to impress us with his costume. But we were shocked when he showed us his private parts,” she told Malaysia’s Star newspaper.

The women were waiting for buses to take them home after their night shift.

When some of the women screamed, he jumped into his car and drove off.

“Next time it will not be Revenge of the Sith but revenge on a sick man if we catch him doing his act again,” Priscilla added.

The flasher was reported to have displayed himself to another group of workers at a second factory nearby.
