Police: Cyclist issuing unwanted buttocks grabs, blown kisses in Longmont
LONGMONT, Colo. — Police are warning women in Longmont to be on the lookout after three reported incidents of a cyclist in the northeast part of the city issuing unwanted and unlawful buttocks grabs and blown kisses over the course of the past two months.
Police said that in all three cases, a male suspect has approached a female from behind in the late afternoon, grabbed her buttocks while riding past on a bicycle and then blew a kiss as he rode away.
In all three incidents the suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s and between 5-foot-9 and 6-foot-0 in height.
The first incident was reported to police on Aug. 8, near the intersection of 21st Avenue and Collyer Street. The victim told police the suspect approached her around 4 p.m., spoke to her in Spanish and blew her multiple kisses after grabbing her buttocks.
That victim also told police she thought the suspect was riding a standard blue style mountain bike.
The second woman told police she was the victim of a nearly identical incident at the same intersection around 4 p.m. on Sept. 26. Police questioned neighbors in the area after the report, with several saying they had seen a white male around 30 years old riding a blue bicycle up and down the 2000 block of Collyer Street one out of every three days, or so.
The third victim told police she experienced similar unlawful sexual contact near the intersection of Collyer Street and Emery Drive, which is just a block south of the first two reported incidents. Again, the victim told police the suspect blew her kisses as he rode away on a dark colored bicycle.
If you have any information regarding these incidents, you’re being asked to call the Longmont Police Department at 303-651-8501.
