They say he strikes during the day, targeting women walking on the Heath alone or in pairs.

A police spokesman said: “Police in Camden are investigating a linked series of indecent exposures in Hampstead Heath. “The male suspect has emerged from a bush and exposed himself to women on six separate occasions between April 2 and May 10.

“He will typically pull his tracksuit bottoms down and begin masturbating in front of women walking alone or in pairs.

“The man does not say anything to the victims whilst he exposes himself.”

He is described as white, aged around 30 - 45 years old. He is around 5ft, 11ins tall with an average build and often wearing a hat and on one occasion a shiny tracksuit.

The spokesman said women should call 999 if they are approached by the man.

Anyone with information should contact Camden police on 101 quoting reference 2311184.
