A TEENAGE boy inappropriately touched two women in Stratton.

The first woman was walking along the alleyway between Griffiths Close and Sandgate around 12.30pm on Thursday September 20 when the teenager approached her and touched her bottom.

The offender then walked off into Yiewsley Crescent and did the same again to another woman.

A 16-year-old boy was detained at the second scene by two male members of the public and has been interviewed by officers.

Both victims were shaken but luckily not hurt in anyway.

The police have been investigating the incident and are now appealing for witnesses.

PC Jo Phelps said: "We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in this part of Swindon on this date.

"We would especially like to hear from a male who was seen on a orange and white pushbike wearing a yellow hi-viz vest who was riding near to the area at that time."

Anyone who can help with their enquiries in any way should contact PC Jo Phelps on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
