Detective Constable Paul Quinn said: Edit“Each incident has taken place within a half mile radius of each other so we believe the same man is responsible. Clearly the circumstances are worrying as he seems to be targeting women and girls of any age. Although No one has been hurt, the victims have been left upset by what happened, particularly the young girls.
“I would appeal to anyone who may have seen this man acting suspiciously in the area or who has been a victim themselves to contact police as soon as possible.”
