Police have released CCTV footage of a man they suspect could have committed as many as 25 sexual assaults against women and children across south London.
The clips were taken on November 22 this year, the same day a 15-year-old girl reported being sexually assaulted in Sandbourne Road, Brockley just after 8.30am.
The man is described as a middle-aged white man aged in his 40s, with blue eyes.
Detective Chief Inspector Andrew Furphy said: “There is a strong possibility that these incidents are part of a linked series of attacks as a number of victims have provided very similar descriptions of the attacker – a white man aged between 40 and 50.
“It is also notable that none of these offences have taken place over a weekend and many of them have been committed during the morning and evening rush hours
“Our officers have been working tirelessly to apprehend the suspect, but we need the publicfs help. CCTV shows footage of a male that we would like to speak to who we believe may be able to assist our investigation. If this is you or if you know who this person is, please contact us.
“We are also aware that there might be further victims who have not yet spoken to police; if you are a victim, or know someone who has been a victim of a sexual assault, I can assure you your information will be treated with the strict confidence and sensitivity. We also have access to specialist support.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police or ring Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
