Police have released a CCTV image of a man wanted after several indecent exposures and reports of sexual assault in east London.
Scotland Yard officials said they had learned of a man who had committed multiple crimes in the Tower Hamlets area between 30 August and 29 September.
Metropolitan Police officers said they knew of a total of seven crimes, and on each occasion the suspect cycled past a woman before exposing himself or sexually assaulting her.
There have also been reports of the man masturbating during the incidents on four occasions.
Police said the man wore a mask while committing the crime, and was seen wearing a black zip hoodie and gray joggers, with a thick black band from hip to knee. He was likely wearing a bike lock around his neck and a checkered baseball cap during the series of attacks.
The suspect’s bike is said to be of black and silver.
The first incident occurred on Upper North Street at around 11.05 a.m. on August 30. This was followed by three incidents on August 31 at Watts Grove around 10.20 pm, Burdett Road at around 10.25 pm and St. Stephens Road at around 11.45 pm.
The second incident happened on September 12 at around 1.30 pm. This was followed by an incident on 12 September at around 1.30 am on Commercial Road near Albert Garden.
The seventh incident took place on September 28 at around 11:40 pm on Burdett Road.
Police are appealing for information related to these crimes, including any potential victims that have yet to be uncovered.
