A bicycle riding teenager aged 14 or 15 is being hunted on suspicion of having sexually assaulted two women on a tow path in Berkshire.

The first assault happened last Wednesday when a 34-year-old female was walking the Thames Path near Reading at around four in the afternoon.

She was approached from behind by a youth on a bike and sexually assaulted. The boy then cycled off.

At 7pm the next day, a 29-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at the same location. Both gave similar descriptions of the teenager, who is said to be white, approximately 14 to 15 years old, about 5ft 8ins, of a slim build, with a shaved head, and a very pale complexion.

The Get Reading website reports the attacker was riding a dark coloured mountain bike and was wearing a grey coloured top, possibly with a black diagonal stripe on the top.

Thames Valley police have appealed for witnesses to contact them on the 101 non-emergency number.
