CCTV appeal after woman is touched inappropriately by man in Morecambe
Police are appealing for information after an 18 year old Preston woman was touched inappropriately by a man as she walked to her friends’ house in Morecambe.
The incident took place around 7.00pm on Monday 13th January when a man riding his bicycle has approached the victim as she walked along Westgate near to the football club in company with a friend and a young child in a pram.
The man has grabbed her bottom and face whilst making inappropriate remarks towards her.
A short time later the same man has cycled back towards the victim and made further sexual remarks.
The man is described as being white and aged in his early twenties. He was wearing small rectangle glasses, a black hat and was wearing a scarf obscuring his face. He was riding a dark coloured bike.
DC Carl Pritchard from Lancaster Police said: “This is a serious offence against a young woman and she was understandably left very distressed.
“I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this incident or with any information about the man responsible to contact Lancashire Police on 101.”
