Crime in SW England: "Serial cyclist groper banned from talking to women for five years"

Can British editors craft headlines or what? Via London-based Ruthie's Law, which has offered commentary in "Sex Pests from the West Country", see this item about an innovative if mildly crazed young Swindonian in the UK's Daily Mail:

A cycling sex pest has been banned from talking to any women for five years after committing a string of mounted indecent assaults.

Paul Jennings, 23, rode up behind five women jogging, cycling or walking around his local park and grabbed their bottoms one evening last April.

He would slam on his brakes when confronted by an angry victim, hurl verbal abuse, blow them a kiss and peddle off.

The father-of-two, from Swindon, was given a sexual offences prevention order forbidding him from approaching any woman he does not know in the open air unless for legitimate reasons.
