Bit of a weird one this.
Last Wednesday I was taking my eldest to a friend's house. We were walking along near the town centre and I moved him out of the way of a lad on his bike who was riding behind us. He was wearing a tracksuit and carrying a newspaper bag. My initial thought was that he was a bit old for a paper round (fairly big lad, looked around 18-19). He carried on ahead of us, before dropping down onto the road and riding up behind a blonde girl who was walking on the pavement. He then stuck his arm out and slapped her hard on the bum.
At first I thought he must have known her, or she was his girlfriend, but it quickly became clear from her embarrassed reaction and the fact that he just rode straight off without looking back that he didn't know her at all.
I was fairly angry about it - thought it was bang out of order, and I think if I hadn't had my 8 year old with me I would have chased after him. After dropping my son off I drove around a few local paper shops to see if his bike was outside (black Norco).
Fast forward to today - a friend and colleague came into my office this morning to say that as she was walking up the road to our offices a fella on a bike, carrying an empty paper bag had ridden up behind her and smacked her arse.
I explained that I had a very good description of him and encouraged her to make a complaint to the police - I also told her to give them my details. She is a little embarrassed about it, and I am not sure that she is going to.
Apart from being incensed that someone thinks its ok to go around doing this, I also am a little concerned as to what he might do when simply slapping women's arses gets boring.
Am I making a bigger deal out of this than necessary, or should I pop down the cop shop tonight and tell them about it?
