Detective Constable Tom McGee of Waltham Forest Police said: “Due to the upsetting nature of these incidents I am very keen to speak to the man pictured.
“The assaults involved the touching of the victims outside of their clothing and while this may not be as intrusive as a rape, the effects of such an assault can be devastating to the victim.
“While I don’t believe there is reason for alarm within the community, I do advise that a degree of care is taken by any women travelling alone.”
Information concerning these incidents should be passed to Detective Constable Tom McGee at Waltham Forest CID on 0203 276 0973 quoting ref: 4912248/14.
