Teen sexually assaulted while on bike
A 17-YEAR-OLD was sexually assaulted while cycling in North Shields, police say.
Northumbria Police is appealing for information following the alleged attack between Percy Main and Silverlink at around 2pm on Saturday, April 14.
The force says a 17-year-old girl was cycling along the Wagon Way when a man grabbed her bike’s handlebars and sexually assaulted her.
The teenage girl was able to break free and cycle away. The man walked off towards Silverlink.
The man is described as slim, 6ft, between 30 and forty and bald with facial hair. Officers would like to speak to a jogger who ran past around the time the attack happened, while a woman and four children were also in the area.
