Officers in Derby are investigating allegations that women have been touched inappropriately by a man in the Cathedral Quarter of the city centre.

There have been a number of reported assaults on women, walking alone, between December 21 last year and today. The force said these incidents have grown in frequency over the past week.

All of the incidents involved the offender touching the women inappropriately, over their clothing, before running off.

Derbyshire Police are asking people to be vigilant whilst walking through the city centre, particularly if you are on your own, and to report any incidents, no matter how minor, to the force.

Police want to speak to a cyclist who was seen on an orange bike at around the time of a stabbing in Derby last month.

Sometime between 4.45pm and 5.10pm on December 8th 2016, a man heard a knock at the door of his house in Webster Street.

When he opened the door, a man stabbed him in the chest. He was treated at hospital and has since been discharged.

Detectives investigating believe the cyclist could have witnessed something which may help the inquiry and are urging them to come forward.
