    Massachusetts State Police are searching for the man who they say indecently assaulted two women while riding a bicycle on the Charles River Esplanade in Boston last week.

    Police said a man was captured on surveillance cameras Aug. 9 near the community boating area at about 1:45 p.m.

    Authorities said the suspect was riding a bike past two women when he grabbed their buttocks.

    Women along the Esplanade Friday were completely shocked to hear the incident happened in the middle of the day.

    "I'm here almost every day and this is shocking to me," said Esha Gupta of Boston.

    "That's just disgusting. But that's just the world we live in, so that's sad," said Ashley Prete who was walking the Esplanade on Friday.

    Boston resident Claire Goebel said she found it disturbing but she normally feels safe.

    "I feel like on the Esplanade, especially there’s always people around, so I’ve always felt pretty safe, Goebel said.

    Prete added that people should be aware of their surroundings while not being on their phones and carrying mace.

    "That’s what I do. I mean, it’s just an unfortunate situation. No one especially women should ever have to feel like they’re unsafe at 1:45 in the afternoon," said Prete.
