VALLEY, Ala. — Valley Police are looking for a man who threatened two women while riding a bike Wednesday, according to a Valley Police Department press release.

A woman told police that at about 9:40 a.m., Wednesday while on 61st Street, a man riding a bicycle pointed a handgun at her and ordered her to get in her car. Another vehicle drove by at this moment and the suspect left on his bicycle.

Another woman told police she was sitting on her front porch on 23rd Avenue that morning when a man matching the other's description approached her. He struck her with a gun after she refused to him use her phone. The suspect then left again.

Police and EMS responded shortly after but did not find a suspect.

The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20s, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, with a slender build and short hair. He was last seen wearing a royal blue shirt with multicolored designs.
