POLICE are hunting a man who attempted to sexually assault three women in two separate incidents.
Yesterday two women were walking along Woodborough Road, Mapperley, when they were approached from behind by a man who tried to grope them.
The women turned round and confronted the suspect who ran off while the victims raised the alarm.
It happened at about 5.30am near to the junction with Cranmer Street.
Detectives are linking the report to an incident which happened in Manor Street, Sneinton, at about 10.20pm on Saturday 29 December 2012.
A woman reported being approached by a man who asked for directions. He then attempted to assault her but when she screamed the man ran off.
In both incidents the women were not injured but have been left incredibly shaken by the ordeal.
They have described the suspect as having a distinctive nose which was either turned up and pointy, or may have had a beauty spot on the end.
The man is black, between 5ft 6ins and 5ft 9ins tall, and aged between 25 and 35. He was wearing a dark coloured top or coat with a lighter coloured hood which was worn up. He also wore a pair of jeans with a patch on the right leg.
Patrols have been increased in the area and officers are appealing for anyone with information to call police immediately.
Witnesses, or anyone with information about the man, is asked to call DC James Bond at Radford Road CID on 101, extension 802 4683, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
