Police say the same man could be behind a number of sexual incidents in Southmead.

A man with no clothes on jumped out in front of a teenage girl earlier this week, while another teenager was touched on her shoulders without her consent on 3rdAugust. 

Police also say a woman in her 50’s was touched inappropriately on 3rdAugust and there have been another two reports of a man walking around with his hands down his trousers.

The incidents all happened in the Badock’s Wood area and involved a man described as being ‘Asian or of tanned appearance, in his late teens or early 20s and approximately 5ft 8ins tall.’

Detective Constable Michael Coleman said: “These are concerning incidents which have caused the victims significant distress.

“We’ve carried out a number of enquiries but now need the public’s help to identify the man involved.

“Anyone with information about the incidents, or who recognises the description of the man, is asked to contact us via the non-emergency number 101 providing the call handler with the reference 5218173617.”

DC Coleman added: “Incidents of this kind are rare in Bristol and while we’d ask people to be vigilant they should not be alarmed.”
