A new e-fit has been released of a man police want to question over a series of sexual assaults in Oxford.

Four women were attacked in the Southfield Road area of the city on 29 May and 2 June.

Police are urging people to come forward if they have seen the man in the area over the past couple of weeks.

On Tuesday, police released an e-fit of a separate man they want to speak to over a fifth sex attack during the same week, on a woman in Westbury Crescent.

That attack took place in the early hours of Sunday.

The 19-year-old victim was punched in the head several times and told police she bit the man on the hand.

Attacks linked

A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: "She is unsure which hand, but feels that it was hard enough to have left a mark.

"Do you know of anyone matching the description given that has a bite mark on their hand? Have you seen a man in Oxford with a bite mark on his hand?

"This assault is now not believed to be linked to the recent sexual assaults on women in Southfield Road."

Two women, aged 21 and 24, were victims of attacks in the Southfield Road area on 29 May.

Four days later, on 2 June, two women, aged 19 and 20, were attacked by a man in the same area.

Anyone with information about any of the attacks is asked to contact Thames Valley Police.
