O'FALLON, Mo. (KSDK) - O'Fallon, Mo. police say they have several leads in trying to capture a white male on a bike involved in multiple cases of assault. Two women who came face to face with him want the man captured and off the street.

Kelly and Sherron are neighbors and jogging partners. They asked that we not show their faces or use their last names.

On September 13, the two women were jogging on Knaust Road near Laura Hill Road, when a man on a bike Kelly tried to grab her.

"I knew of other instances where this man was spotted, and I screamed something to the effect of 'He's doing it again,'" she said.

O'Fallon police say there were two similar incidents in late August.

"The first one was in the area of Calumet Ranch Trail and Knaust. There were two different victims. A male exposed himself to one and then inappropriately touched another female," said Officer Diana Damke.

A couple of days later, a second assault in O'Fallon.

"There was a female jogger who was assaulted but was not inappropriately touched," said Officer Damke.

The woman came forward because she wants the guy caught and wants O'Fallon residents to be aware there's an attacker on the loose.

"It's extremely scary. My biggest fear is that he's going to take it a step further if he's not caught soon. It's going to go from just grabbing to maybe taking them and going a little bit further," she said.

The man police are looking for is always on a bike, and In the two of the incidents he was wearing a hoodie. O'Fallon police want you to call them if you see anyone fitting this description acting suspiciously.
