CHESHIRE - Police in Cheshire are searching for a man they said may be connected to several incidents in town over the last several months.

In May 2016, a woman was walking on Strathmore Drive when she was approached by a young white male who ran up behind her. Police said he grabbed her before picking up a bike and riding off into the woods.

In June of 2016, a walker on the Linear Trail was pushed to the ground by a male riding a bike. He grabbed her, smiled, and rode away, police said.

Also in June, another woman was grabbed on Strathmore Drive. He smiled at her before walking back toward two other males further back on the road.

In August of 2016, a different woman was grabbed on Strathmore Drive. She told police a man ran towards her, grabbed her in a "bear hug" from behind and threw her to the ground. He then grabbed at her and pulled at her shorts before she finally pushed him off of her, police said.

Police said the suspect in the August incident is about 5'9'' in his teens and approximately 160 lbs. He is athletically built, tan with short dark hair and no facial hair. He also wears braces on his teeth.

The Cheshire Police Department said they believe he may be the same man responsible for other attacks.  They are working on following leads and developing a suspect.

Walkers and joggers are encouraged to use caution, walk with a partner, and to report any suspicious persons or behavior to the Cheshire Police Department.

Anyone with information regarding any of the above listed incidents please contact the CPD Detective Division.
