Police have released an image of a man they need to identify following reports of a man repeatedly exposing himself to women and masturbating – while riding around on his bike.
The Metropolitan Police were called to seven reports of indecent exposure or sexual assault from the same man across the London borough of Tower Hamlets between August 30 and September 29.
On each occasion, he cycled up behind a woman before either exposing himself or carrying out a sexual assault.
In four of the instances, the man is reported to have masturbated.
He is known to wear a mask while committing offences and was seen wearing a black zip hoody, grey joggers with a thick black stripe from hip to knee, potentially wearing a bike lock around his neck and a chequered baseball cap.
The bike he was one is described as black and silver.
As a result of these incidents, police have increased patrols in the local area.
Police are appealing for information related to these offences, including for any potential victims who have not yet come forward, so that they can be supported by specialised officers.
If you recognise the man in this image or have information you would like to share with police, please call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD286/29SEP21.
