Police arrest bike riding panty thief, appeal for women missing underwear to come forward

Police in Melbourne are appealing for women who are missing bras and undies to come forward after officers arrested a man and found him in possession of an abundance of underwear this morning.

The 28-year-old was riding his bike along Capp Street in Reservoir about 2.15am when police stopped and arrested the man over a number of outstanding warrants.

He was also found holding a large amount of women’s underpants and bras, many of which were wet as though they had been hung on a line to dry.


Police are now asking women in the Reservoir area who may be missing some undergarments to contact them.
