COPS are hunting for a middle-aged cyclist who allegedly sexually assaulted two young girls.
The kids, aged six and seven, were on a residential street in Oldham, Greater Manchester, when they were attacked, cops say.
The man is reported to have approached the youngsters in Kirkstone Close at about 12.40pm on Saturday.
He then sexually assaulted the victims by touching one of the girls inappropriately, before asking the second victim to touch his groin area, cops say.
The man then fled the scene.
The suspect is described to be a white male, aged between 40-60 years with short grey hair, of medium build, wearing shorts and a top with white writing on the front and grey patches on the shoulders.
