Airdrie RCMP are looking for a suspect who has assaulted multiple women walking the city’s streets recently.

RCMP didn’t provide a timeframe for when the assaults occurred.

Police said a man on a bike has been cycling up behind women, and as he rides past, he hits them on their butts.

“After he does this, he rides away from the scene and does not attempt to commit the offence again on the same female,” Airdrie RCMP said in a news release on Wednesday.

The suspect is a man in his 20s, and he was wearing a dark jacket and riding a black mountain bike during the incidents, police said.

RCMP took the opportunity to advise people to be aware of their surroundings and to report anything suspicious to them.
