Officers investigating the crimes have linked the series of disturbing incidents and released CCTV footage of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the sickening spree. The first offence happened in Rostrevor Avenue in Tottenham when a 15-year-old girl walking alone was approached by man carrying a mobile phone on January 20.

He showed the teenager pornography on his device.

And on a 12-year-old girl was targeted in nearby Linthorpe Road, Stamford Hill, at around 7pm on February 16.

A man approached the youngster and exposed himself before fleeing the scene.

Within hours another incident was reported to the Met.

At around 9pm a mother in her 20s was pushing her child in a buggy in Kyverdale Road, Stamford Hill, when she was attacked by a man.

The predator pushed her and groped her buttocks before making off.

All three of the victims were left shaken and upset by the incidents but thankfully did not suffer serious physical harm.

The police are appealing to members of the public who may recognise the man in the CCTV to come forward to assist with inquiries.

He said: “We are doing everything we can to identify and apprehend the man responsible.

“I am asking local people to study the images and footage issued very carefully and contact us immediately if they have information that could help.

“Please work with us to help keep your communities safe.”

The appeal comes as the issue of women’s safety hit headlines recently following the death of Sarah Everard.

The 33-year-old disappeared while walking to her Brixton home earlier this month.

Her body was later found in woodland near Ashford in Kent.

A serving Met police officer has been charged with her kidnap and murder.

Crowds of protesters descended on Parliament in the wake of the killing to demand more protection for women.

The tragedy has given rise to the “Reclaim The Streets” movement which aims to make streets safer for women and girls.

Anyone with information should call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote reference 4603660/21.

Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, by calling 0800 555 111.
