Police have launched a witness appeal after a man made sexual gestures and comments towards a female cyclist in Maidenhead.

Thames Valley Police (TVP) is also appealing for information about another incident which happened a week later in Summerleaze Road, which it believes is linked. 

The first incident happened at about 3.50pm on Monday, October 11 in North Town Moor, when a woman was cycling before a man approached and made sexual gestures towards her.

The woman continued to cycle along Ray Mill Road West, and a few minutes later was approached by a man who shouted sexual comments to her.

A second incident occurred on Tuesday, October 19 at about 6.30pm, when another woman was running through Summerleaze Road along a path to Cookham.

She noticed a man go into the bushes ahead of her and, after she passed him, he started running and caught up with her. 

The woman then stopped a number of times and the man kept stopping to let her catch him up.

The offender who was running is described as an Asian man aged in his mid-twenties. He is approximately 5ft 10ins tall with a trimmed beard.

He was wearing a grey tracksuit with the hood up and Nike trainers with a distinctive sole pattern.
