Appeal after women punched in face by bike rider in Grimsby

Officers are appealing for witnesses after a man was arrested following reports of assault in the Brereton Avenue, Grimsby area yesterday afternoon (Monday 9 January).

It was a reported that a man riding a bike approached various women in the street, punched them in the face and then fled the area.

After carrying out lines of enquiry, officers arrested a 27-year-old man today (Tuesday 10 January) on suspicion of assault.

Detective Inspector Archer said: “I can confirm that this morning (Tuesday 10 January) we arrested a 27-year-old man on suspicion of assault.

“Whilst nobody was seriously injured as a result of the incidents, understandably the women have been left by shaken by what I can only imagine was a distressing experience.

“I would like to reassure members of the public that incidents of this nature are incredibly rare, however we will absolutely not condone any form of violence against women or girls across the Humberside Force area.

“The man remains in police custody whilst we continue with lines of enquiry into the reports.

“We would appeal for anyone with information that would help with our enquiries to call us on our non-emergency number 101 quoting log 309 of 9 January.”
