Images released of man in relation to attacks on six women in Belfast

Four women were stabbed, while two were punched. Police believe one man was responsible for the attacks.

The PSNI has shared two images of a man believed to be the main suspect following a series of attacks that occurred on six women in Belfast on Monday (12 October).

The women were attacked by a silent and hooded or masked assailant on a bicycle, who used a small but sharp knife, in the city centre on Monday evening.

The victims were aged between 19 and 22, and suffered injuries to the neck, arm and back of the leg areas. None of the wounds resulted in life-threatening injuries.

Belfast area co-ordinator Chief Superintendent Simon Walls said: "I want to reassure the community that officers are carrying out additional patrols across the city centre and south Belfast.

"We are doing everything we can to identify and arrest this man. While detectives are continuing to conduct extensive CCTV enquiries, I would appeal to any drivers who were in these areas at the times we have now identified, to review any dash cam footage, and for any business owners in the relevant areas to review their CCTV.

"I would encourage anyone who may have witnessed any of these incidents or anyone who was in any of these areas that may have dash-cam footage to contact police at Lisburn Road on the non-emergency number 101, or submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
