Police are searching for information after two teenage girls were sexually assaulted in a busy shopping area in Glasgow.
The man struck twice on Monday afternoon, touching a 14-year old girl on Buchanan Street and 18-year old woman on Sauchiehall street.
The suspect is described as white, between 30 and 40 years of age, with short dark hair and who was wearing a blue Adidas tracksuit and baggy blue or black trousers,
He approached the 14-year old in Buchanan Street near its junction with Sauchiehall Street from behind and touched her inappropriately at around 3.25pm.
He then made off towards Buchanan Galleries shopping centre where at around 3.50pm he did the same to an 18-year old woman whilst on the escalator.
Police believe the man may also have done the same to a third victim.
Detective Constable Vhairi MacDonald, City Centre Police Office, said: “Although neither girl was injured, both were distressed by what happened.
“Whilst some people may not consider what the man did as serious, we do and we are glad both girls came forward.
“Officers are currently checking CCTV to identify the man, who we believe may have assaulted at least one other woman in the shopping centre, however, at this time she has not come forward.
“We would appeal to her, or anyone else who was either approached by the man or who may have seen him or who indeed, may know who he is, to contact police.”
