Police search for Lincoln man after indecent behaviour

This story is over

Police are searching for a man who was seen acting inappropriately towards three women in Lincoln.

The first incident was reported to police on Thursday, March 20 at around 1.25pm.

A woman reported being followed by a man on a pushbike on the riverbank near the bridge at the end of Russell Street.

He allegedly cycled past her a number of times with his hand down his trousers and was moving his hand up and down as if masturbating, before cycling off towards The Plough pub.

A second incident was also reported on Thursday, March 20 just before 1.30pm.

A woman had entered Boultham Park through the Rookery Lane entrance opposite Blackbourn Road with her young daughter and puppy.

She walked towards a wooded area in the direction of the riverbank and was followed by a man on a pushbike. He cycled past her four or five times with his hand down his trousers as in the earlier incident, police said.

In both incidents the man is described as wearing chef-style checked trousers, either blue or black checks, with a black jacket.

He is though to be in his 20s, and is described as between 5ft 9in and 5ft 11in, of average build, with short light brown/blonde hair.

He was riding a pale green coloured mountain bike.

A third incident was reported around 1.30pm on Monday, March 24 in the area of Russell Street.

A woman reported seeing a male urinating on the river footpath near to the bridge at the end of Russell Street.

He is described as wearing a green Adidas hooded top with red stripes, around 5ft 9in, and riding a pale green coloured bike which had a fishing rod attached.

Anyone with any information concerning the incidents or who may have seen a man matching that description or behaving suspiciously, is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incidents 208 or 209 of March 2o or incident number 307 of March 24.
