Police are looking for a man who ‘attempted to commit bestiality’ on a dog in front of two girls on Canal Walkway in the Western Sydney suburb of Greystanes.
Two women, aged 20 and 23, were walking their dogs on Sunday when a man with a pushbike approached them and started to chat with them, an NSW Police statement issued today said.
“The man then assaulted one of the dogs, before exposing himself and then is believed to have attempted to commit bestiality on the other dog,” Police said.
The terrified women quickly left the area and contacted the police.
The offender ‘is described as Indian/sub-continental appearance, 180-190cm tall, with a dark complexion, unshaven, with short black hair’.
“He was wearing a grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts with a pin stripe through them. He also wore dirty white and red skater style shoes.”
A police patrol spotted a man of similar description at 8:15 am today but the suspect was able to escape despite officers pursuing him on foot. The search was reinforced with a Police helicopter and dog squad but the offender could not be spotted.
Police are hoping the pictures of the bicycle and the man they want to speak to will help members of the public identify the offender.
Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
