Various women reported they had been approached by a man who was riding a silver and black bicycle who then exposed himself and in some instances sexually assaulted them.

Detective Constable Janina Parol from the Central East Command Unit said: “A man is in custody but due to the number of offences being investigated, it is possible there are more victims who have not come forward.

“We want to hear from anyone who may have been targeted by this man who appears to have been active predominantly in the E3 area. We have specialist officers who are ready to listen and support you.”
