Young Woman Shaken After Being Approached By Stranger

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man approached a woman in Forres.

The 24-year-old woman was walking on Pilmuir Road West around 10.25pm on Saturday, 23 May, 2020, when she was approached by the man on a bicycle, who tried to engage with her and make contact with her before leaving the area.

The motivation behind this incident is unclear and whilst the woman was not hurt, she was shaken by this man’s actions.

The man is described as being 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build, wearing a black hooded jumper with the hood up and dark coloured jeans and was on a silver bike.

Commenting Inspector Kerry Rigg, of Lossiemouth Police Station, said:

“I would like to reassure the community that our officers are making enquiries to trace the person involved.

“We do not yet know what this man’s intentions were, but I would appeal to anyone who was in the area to get in touch and I’d especially also appeal to motorists who may have being driving in the area and may have captured the incident on dashcam footage to also get in touch.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting CF0113830520.
