Appeal to identify man in possible linked series of sex assaults in Vauxhall
At 23:50hrs on 16 January the victim, a 24-year-old woman, was followed from Vauxhall Station to Fentiman Road by a man who grabbed her from behind, assaulted her and pulled her to the ground.
Members of the public, hearing the victim’s screams, intervened and chased the suspect away.
Shortly after, a man, whom officers believe to be the same suspect, was seen exposing himself and committing an indecent act at Exchange Square.
At the time of the incident, the suspect was described as a heavy set male, wearing a black puffer jacket, grey joggers and a black and white face mask.
At 07:05hrs on Monday, 1 March, a 28-year-old woman was pushed to the ground by a man as she walked through Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
The victim was assaulted by the suspect before she managed to flee the scene. At the time of the incident the suspect was wearing a black puffer with white lettering of ‘Versace’, black trousers and Nike Airmax trainers.
Detectives believe that the two incidents may involve the same suspect, however, this has not yet been confirmed.
Anyone who can name the male pictured or who has information concerning either of these incidents should call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 7946/16JAN.
