A serial sex fiend attacked three women within four hours on London’s Central Line.

The suspect – caught on CCTV wearing a puffer jacket and black flat cap – is being hunted by police after he grabbed his first victim from behind during morning rush hour in east London.

Later he would sexually assault two others, according to British Transport Police (BTP) detectives.

They say he grabbed his first victim from behind at 7.35am at Gants Hill tube station on the Central Line as she walked through the ticket barriers.

Two hours later he sexually assaulted another woman on a bridge at Snaresbrook station – also on the Central line – before targeting a third victim at the same station shortly after midday.  

Police hunting the pervert released an image of the man wearing jeans and trainers.

A BTP spokesman said: ‘We’d like to speak to him in connection with a number of sexual assaults in London – all on the same day.

‘At around 7.35am on October 4 last year, a man walked behind a woman going through the ticket barriers at Gants Hill station. He grabbed her from behind.

‘At 9.30am on the same day, a man sexually assaulted a woman on the overbridge at Snaresbrook station.

‘Then, at 12.15pm on the same day, a woman was grabbed and sexually assaulted in the same place.

‘Officers would like to speak to the man in these images as it is believed they may have information which could help the investigation.’
