He is described as being Asian, in his late 20s to early 30s, of a medium to large build and wearing a dark hooded top and dark jeans.
Extra, high-visibility patrols will be deployed to the area in the coming days and officers are asking people who use this route to be vigilant while inquiries are ongoing to identify the offender.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Riddick said: “We have released details of these sexual assaults, not to cause unnecessary anxiety in the community but so that people who use this popular route can be vigilant and take precautions.
“It would appear this offender sexually assaulted the first victim and then two more women as he escaped.
“It is therefore very important we let people know what has happened so they can take all the necessary precautions, such as keeping to well-lit areas, where possible remaining in groups and reporting any suspicious activity to police.
“I would appeal to anyone who thinks they know who the offender is or has information about any of these attacks to come forward.”
