"We are treating these cases as linked based on the locality, timings, description of the offender and his repeated concerning conduct towards these women.

"The offender was very brazen and frightened these women from his actions. All the offences took place on warm summer evenings when the area would have been extremely busy with children and dog walkers.

"Please look carefully at the e-fit and moving footage of the offender. If you believe you know who this person is we need his name."

He added: “The victims have been left traumatised, shocked and appalled by this man's actions. It is absolutely crucial that if you know who he is to contact the investigation team."
