As part of an investigation into a series of stabbings that took place in Belfast on Monday evening, the PSNI have released images of a suspect that they are seeking following the assaults.
Three women, aged between 19 and 22, were attacked by a hooded man who was armed with a small but sharp knife. The women suffered injuries in the neck, arm and back of the leg areas but the injuries that they sustained were not life-threatening.
The first stabbing took place on Ormeau Avenue at approximately 8:10pm, the second stabbing took place on Donegall Square West at approximately 8:45pm and the third stabbing took place on University Road at approximately 9:30pm.
PSNI received reports of a fourth attack on Lisburn Road at approximately 9pm where a woman was punched in the neck.
At 8:55pm, a fifth attack was reported on Dublin Road where a woman was punched in the head.
Believing the series of assaults to be linked, PSNI have released the image below of a man riding a mountain bike wearing dark clothing that they believe to be the suspect.
