Police are hunting a man who has dressed as a woman and committed a series of indecent exposures and unwanted approaches against women.
The culprit has struck 12 women in Camden and Kentish Town in north London and has been described as speaking in a ‘European’ style accent.
His first known flashing happened in March 2019 in the well-heeled area of Kelly Street in Camden, where houses cost at least £1million.
The most recent was just two days ago in Leighton Road in Kentish Town, near the railway station.
These nine areas were the locations for where the suspect targeted 12 women over nine dates
The victims were all young women, with the youngest just 18-year-old and the eldest 33.
Some of the offences happened on the same day and in exactly the same place, but he has been able to evade justice so far.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said detectives had now linked all the crimes.
The flasher has targeted a number of areas including near to Kentish Town stations
