Police have re-released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak relation to a series of linked incidents of sexual assault in Milton Keynes.

Three of the incidents occurred between 7.30am and 8.10am on Tuesday, October 5 in central Milton Keynes, and a fourth was later reported, which had occurred on October 4.

On each occasion, a female victim had been walking alone when they were approached from behind by a man who sexually assaulted them by touching them inappropriately over their clothing.

None of the victims, three of whom were all aged in their mid to late teens and a third in her 30s, were injured and they are not linked to any previous incidents reported in Milton Keynes.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Mandy Banfield of Milton Keynes CID said: “This series of incidents occurred within a narrow time frame on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 October.
