Cheshire police are investigating several complaints about a teenage boy groping women in town and throwing them to the ground. Investigators have not yet identified a suspect and said the descriptions from all four incidents are similar.
Police received the first complaint in May. The woman said she was walking in the Strathmore Drive area when a young man ran up behind her and grabbed her buttocks. He fled on a bicycle and road into the woods, according to police.
The second victim said she was walking on the Linear Trail in the area of Lock 12 on June 2 when a young man on a bicycle pushed her to the ground, grabbed her buttocks, smiled and road away.
Police received yet another complaint in early June from a woman who was grabbed as she walked in the Strathmore Drive area.
She said a young man walked up behind her, grabbed her buttocks, smirked and walked back toward two other young men who were standing down the road.
The most recent incident happened on Monday. The woman said she too was walking in the Strathmore Drive area when she walked past a young man who was pacing. The woman and the teen said hello to each other and she continued on her way, but the teen grabbed her in a bear hug, threw her to the ground, grabbed her buttocks and pulled her shorts before the woman pushed the teen off of her, police said.
The woman who was attacked on Monday said the attacker was around 5-feet-9, 160 pounds, athletically built and appeared high school aged.
Several victims said the teen has braces and black hair that might be curly.
Police are following leads and encouraging people to use caution and walk or jog with someone.
