Police in Penarth are attempting to trace a weirdly-behaving “man on a bike” believed to be responsible for a series of assaults and unwanted approaches to local people.
The man – who is described as white with black hair and missing teeth, apparently claims to be “autistic and distressed”.
The latest such unwanted approach – described as a “peculiar incident” – was made by the man on Sunday May 29th in which two members of the public were walking along Bradford Place, Penarth when they were approached by the man on a bike shouting obscenities.
Police say there has been a “spate” of such incidents in the area.
The man physically grabbed the female and shouted obscenities at her – making off on his bike and turning right into Beach Lane.
Police say this is the latest in a number of similar incidents which have occurred during the past couple of months.
Anyone who has seen this man, who has witnessed any of the incidents, or who knows who he is, should contact South Wales Police via 101 quoting reference *019575 immediately or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
