IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa City police have arrested a man accused of groping several women while he pedaled past them on a bicycle.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (https://icp-c.com/1HksN96 ) that 44-year-old Anthony Michael Long, of Iowa City, was arrested Wednesday on four charges of assault with intent to commit sexual abuse, an aggravated misdemeanor.

The Iowa City Police Department says it received five reports between May 27 and June 8 of a man on a bike approaching women from behind around Willow Creek Park and grabbing victims’ genital and buttocks area.

Police say they used bicycle officers and plainclothes female officers to catch Long.

Long remained in the Johnson County Jail on Saturday in lieu of $5,000 cash bond and could not be reached for comment.
