DC police seek bicyclist accused of drive-by butt slaps

August 21, 2019

WASHINGTON (AP) — Police in the nation’s capital are searching for a male bicyclist accused of slapping and grabbing women’s butts as he rode past them.

Police tell news outlets the women were all assaulted within five hours on Monday. A police statement says the bicyclist was caught on video by a surveillance camera. Police released a clip of the video that shows the bicyclist wearing what appears to be a baseball jersey and riding a bicycle that has an upturned basket.

It’s unclear if the assailant is a minor. Police say he’s being sought on misdemeanor sexual abuse offenses.
