Teenager arrested in search for cyclist who has indecently assaulted women in Leicester
Detectives searching for a cyclist who indecently assaulted at least eight women as he rode past them have arrested a 19-year-old man.
The teenager has been questioned about incidents in the Narborough Road area of Leicester between the end of December and late January.
Police said today that the suspect had been questioned and released on bail as officers continued their investigation.
One of the victims, a 34-year-old woman, told the Leicester Mercury earlier this month: "I felt violated and intimidated, especially as when my attacker was riding off he was looking back at me.

"I hope my attacker will be caught and brought to justice as I don't feel safe walking around my neighbourhood knowing he could be about to pounce again.
"I am scared every time I see a cyclist in a hoodie."
The incidents happened in Upperton Road, Braunstone Gate, Imperial Avenue, Western Road, Great Central Way, St Nicholas Circle and Wilberforce Road.
Police are also linking a similar incident in Aylestone Road to the rider.
The incidents occurred between 11.15am and 7.30pm.
