Officers are hunting for the suspect in connection with the attacks involving a woman, 30, and two 16-year-olds girls in Burger King in Praed Street.

In the latest incident on May 16, the woman was flashed at by a man who went on to make sexually indecent gestures towards her.

After she fled the toilets he followed her down the stairs before escaping through the fire exit on the first floor.

The victim alerted staff but left before the police arrived.

Officers are appealing for her to come forward.

The man was wearing a blue jacket with blue jeans, dark coloured shoes and was carrying a black bag at the time.
