Police hunt for woodland sex pest

Have your say

A sex pest seen lurking near woodland in Doncaster is being hunted by police.

The man is believed to have indecently assaulted two teenage girls near Squirrel Woods, Carcroft.

The incident happened as the girls made their way home along a path. It is believed the man approached the girls and began to ask questions, before putting his arm around one of them and pinching her bottom.

The girls were upset by the incident, but not harmed, at around 5.25pm on Monday, May 6.

Police have received other reports of a man in the area asking young girls to show him where the woods are in Carcroft.

The man is white, aged in his late 20s, 6ft tall, of slim build, with a pale complexion. He had brownish blond scruffy hair, bushy eyebrows and discoloured crooked teeth.

It is thought he may have a black and orange bicycle, and drive a dark Transit van with horizontal silver stripes. Witnesses or anyone with information is urged to call police on 101 quoting 958 of May 6.
