Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with three linked incidents of sexual assault on teenagers, according to Thames Valley Police.

The incidents all occurred between 7.30am and 8:10am last Tuesday (05/10) in central Milton Keynes.

Police have said that in each incident, a man approached a female walking alone from behind, then sexually assaulting them by inappropriately touching them over their clothing.

None of the victims, all aged in their mid to late teens, were injured in any of the incidents and it is thought that they are not linked to any previous incidents in Milton Keynes.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Scott Dempsey of Milton Keynes CID said: “This series of incidents occurred within a narrow time frame on Tuesday and I believe that the man pictured in the image I am releasing will have vital information that can assist me in this investigation.

“The offences took place on the overbridge behind Central Milton Keynes train station, outside the Wetherspoons pub in Midsummer Boulevard and outside Sainsbury’s on Witan Gate.

“I can confirm that we are not linking these offences to incidents of a similar nature that were reported to the force between 9 and 23 September.

“I would appeal to anybody who recognises the man in the image to please get in touch with Thames Valley Police either by making a report online or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43210450724.

“Alternatively, for 100% anonymity, you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“You may notice an increased presence of police officers in the area over the coming days to offer reassurance to the local community.

“Although these incidents appear to be isolated within a short period of time, please remain vigilant and report any incidents of a similar nature to the force.”
