Police in Western Australia are on the hunt for a well-dressed man who used the tires of his electric bike to draw penis images on the footpath.

CCTV footage shows the man using the rubber from his tyres to create the explicit images on Murray St in Perth.

"The man has appeared to spin the wheels of an electric bicycle in order to draw explicit images with the rubber from the tyres. This has resulted in multiple images drawn on to the ground," a Crime Stoppers statement read.

He is described as having a thin-to-average build, olive skin, dark hair and was dressed in a business shirt, blazer, jeans, and trainers. 

Police used Facebook in an appeal to the public to find out who the man was, with their post attracting over 1400 comments. 

"I hear police are still working on a cold case from Wanneroo High School in the 1980s where someone drew a similar picture on one of the blackboards in the English department," one Facebook user joked. 

"Who knew we could create such art with electric bikes? Thanks for spreading awareness about this new technique," said another. 

Meanwhile others questioned what police were doing posting about the graffiti.

"I wish my stolen wallet and credit card had this much attention and a social media post," complained one user while others questioned whether it had been a slow day for police in Perth. 

Some said the man's behaviour was "childish" but others had to disagree: "I love that cheeky grin on his face, a lovable rascal." 

The graffiti policing comes after Australian Capital Territory police appealed to the public to find the culprit behind cute cartoon dinosaurs spreading messages of love.

"They may look cute but each caricature represents a real cost for a member of the community to clean up, and graffiti amounts to property damage, which is a criminal offence," ACT policing wrote to Facebook.
