POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a number of reports of suspicious behaviour in the Church Lane and Royal Avenue areas of Belfast on Saturday, 25 November. 

Constable Carter said: “It was reported to police shortly after 7.40 pm on last Saturday evening that a man had approached a number of women and touched them inappropriately.

“A 29 year old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of disorderly behaviour and sexual assault.

“He has since been released on police bail, pending further enquiries.

“It is believed three to four women may have been approached by this man who is described as being 5’ 5” in height, wearing a hooded top and ripped jeans. He also had his left hand bandaged. 

“We would appeal to these women to come forward and speak to police as we believe they may have information that could help with our investigation.

“They should call us on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1271 of 25/11/17.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
