The victims were aged between 19 and 31.

Detectives are now appealing for help in identifying the man pictured who is black, aged 25 to 35 and 6ft.

Det Con Clare Beauchamp, from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “These incidents have left the victims feeling very frightened and violated. I am appealing to the public to help identify and locate this man as quickly as possible.

“Although none of the victims have suffered physical injury, the effects of becoming a victim of sexual assault can be lasting and traumatic.”
