Police said the suspect, a lone man, approached the women exposing his penis and asking them if he wanted to have sex with them.

All incidents were reported to the police who began investigating.

Detectives believe these offences were committed by the same man and specialist detectives are carrying out enquiries to identify the suspect.

The suspect is described as having tanned skin with short brown hair, dark eyes and was clean shaven.

He is believed to be between 5ft 6in and 5ft 8in tall and aged around 25 to 35 years old.

The investigation team have released an e-fit of the suspect together with some moving footage of him, which was captured by one of the victims using her mobile phone.

Officers are asking for anyone who was on Hampstead Heath on Tuesday June 6 and Wednesday June 7 to cast their minds back to the early evening and think about if they saw anyone matching this description or a man showing suspicious or concerning behaviour.

They want to hear from anyone who thinks they saw anything that could assist their enquiries.

Officers also want to hear from any other possible victims who have not previously come forward.

Det Ch Insp Paul Ridley, from the Met's Central North Public Protection Team, said: "We are treating these cases as linked based on the locality, timings, description of the offender and his repeated concerning conduct towards these women.

"The offender was very brazen and frightened these women from his actions. All the offences took place on warm summer evenings when the area would have been extremely busy with children and dog walkers.

"Please look carefully at the e-fit and moving footage of the offender. If you believe you know who this person is we need his name.

“The victims have been left traumatised, shocked and appalled by this man's actions. It is absolutely crucial that if you know who he is to contact the investigation team."
