Exeter police still searching for naked nightime cyclist

Nude rider spotted again on Saturday night but offciers' pursuit on foot proved fruitless...

Police in Exeter are still looking for a naked cyclist who rides through the city’s streets at night.

In April, we reported how Devon & Cornwall Police had issued an appeal after two sightings of the mystery rider, wearing a black hoodie but lacking trousers or underwear.

He was spotted again this weekend, with officers from an armed response vehicle who also carry out general policing duties despatched after the rider was spotted again on Saturday evening.

According to posts by Sergeant Harry Tangye on Twitter, officers tried to find the man on foot but were unable to do so, and he appealed to the cyclist to get in touch.

Needless to say, the tweet prompted some jokes on Twitter.

In their appeal in April, police said that the man was "described as a white male, aged twenties to early thirties, with collar-length scruffy hair and riding a dark coloured bicycle.”

Curiously, they didn’t highlight the naked-from-the-waist-down aspect.
