Two women have been indecently assaulted while walking along a riverside path in Chelmsford.

Both attacks happened on the area known as 'Bunny Walks'.

The first was between 9 and 9.15pm on January 10 when a man approached the victim from behind naer the Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre and put his arms around her chest and breasts.

Then, last Frisday, another woman was grabbed from behind by a man who held her breasts by the Riverside Inn.

In both cases the victims screamed or shouted and the attacker ran off.

Neither woman was injured but they were left shaken and police are warning women to be wary and, where possible, walk home with another person.

Anyone with any information about the incidents or may have witness information is asked to contact Pc Andy Cox at Chelmsford Police Station on 101.
