Police are “extremely keen” to speak to a man following a series of sex attacks in north-west London.

Three women were separately approached from behind and sexually assaulted in Brent on the evening of March 6, Scotland Yard said.

They were walking alone in the Neasden/Dollis Hill area between 7.30pm and 10.45pm, and a fourth incident was reported in the same location around 1am on March 24.

Detectives are keeping an “open mind” as to whether the incidents are linked.

The Metropolitan Police have released a photograph of a man they wish to speak to, believed to be 25-35 years old.

He is of Asian or Mediterranean appearance, of medium build and was wearing a dark bomber jacket, dark trousers and a black hat at the time of the attacks.

Detective sergeant Steve Sussex, who has been leading the investigation, said: “While we are keeping an open mind as to whether these assaults are linked, we are extremely keen to speak to the man identified in these images.

“We would encourage women to be vigilant when walking home in the evenings and where possible to stick to well-lit areas.

“We are working tirelessly to catch the perpetrator/s of these attacks and would urge anyone with information to come forward and speak to us.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
