A sex attacker cycled into a pedestrian causing them both to fall to the ground before he assaulted her and rode off.

The attack happened at about 0400 GMT on Sunday when the 34-year-old victim was close to the junction of Bullingdon Road and St Mary's Road in East Oxford.

Detectives believe he is the same man who exposed himself to a 22-year-old woman in Chester Street in December, who also rode off on a bike.

An e-fit image of the wanted man has been released to trace witnesses.

The man was described as mixed race and in his early 30s and was wearing a black puffer-style jacket.

Det Sgt Claire Storry said the first victim contacted police on Sunday to report she had seen a man on a bike in the East Oxford area.
