Police are appealing for information after nine women were assaulted in the Sydney CBD on Thursday.
One of the incidents involved the indecent assault of a 41-year-old woman while she was collecting donations for charity at Town Hall Station on Thursday morning.
The man was described as Caucasian, 180cm tall, aged in his 60s.
Police are searching for another man who punched eight women in the CBD on Thursday afternoon.
Three of the women were assaulted in Wynyard Park just before 2pm and ran to a nearby hotel for help where the man followed them. The man fled as police were searching for him, assaulting two more women on Shelley Street.
Less than two hours later, two different women reported falling to the ground after being punched in the back on George Street in Haymarket.
At 6:30pm, a woman alerted police that a man of similar appearance punched her in the face while she was talking on her phone on Bent Street.
Six of the women suffered bruising but did not require further medical attention.
The man was described as being in his 30s or 40s, tall, dark skin with a possible dark beard. He was last seen running towards Farrah Place in Sydney’s CBD, wearing white pants or overalls, a white hooded jumper and a blue and white striped vest.
Police are urging anyone with information about any of the incidents to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. – Xantre Macaraeg
