A man has been charged with alleged intimidation and obscene exposure after an incident at Balmoral in the Southern Highlands.

Just after 7:30am yesterday, a 13 year old girl was waiting for her school bus on Wilson Drive when a 41 year old man from Thirlmere tried to lure her into his vehicle.

The girl reported the matter to the bus driver who then contacted Police.

The man then allegedly exposed himself to the girl's mother and became abusive before driving away.

Police spotted his vehicle on Westbourne Avenue in Thirlmere and took him back to Narellan Police Station where he was charged.

Officers also found a small amount of ice and cannabis on him, and discovered that his licence was cancelled from June 19.

While in custody the man allegedly damaged a Police cell.

He's due to appear in Campbelltown Court today.
