We’re appealing for witnesses to two public order incidents in Bristol as part of an investigation into the ongoing harassment of a woman.

During the first incident a man shouted abuse at a woman and children from inside a van on Atlas Road between 3pm and 3.30pm on 15 June.

Six days later (21 June) at the same location, the man used his van to block his victim’s car before shouting abuse at her. This incident happened sometime between 7.30am and 8am.

The offender is described as black, around 5ft 7ins tall and of slim build. He wore black clothing.

Anyone who witnessed or heard either of the incidents is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5221133542.

A man has been arrested in connection with this inquiry and subsequently released under investigation while further enquiries take place.
