Melbourne Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team detectives have released CCTV footage of a man they would like to speak to following two sexual assaults in the CBD in December.
Investigators have been told a man entered a clothing store on Little Bourke St about 7pm on Friday, December 18 and struck up a conversation with a female staff member.
The man then grabbed the woman and sexually assaulted her in the store.
Police have been told the offender then smiled at the woman before running from the store.
Detectives believe the same man attended the store about 7pm the following night and spoke to another female staff member.
The man asked the woman for the price of some clothing behind her and as she turned around to check the item, he sexually assaulted her in the store.
The man again smiled at the victim before running away.
Police have released the above images of a man who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.
The man is perceived to be of Asian appearance, aged in his early 30s, approximately 175cm tall, slim build with a moustache and facial hair.
He was wearing dark grey clothing and had a black satchel which he wore across his chest at the time of the incidents.
