A man has been charged with a series of sexual assaults which occurred in the Clapham and Brixton Hill area of south-west London. Mehdi Midani, 24, of no fixed abode, is due to appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court charged with six counts of sexual assault and two counts of exposure that occurred between 22 October and 31 October.

Nine women, aged between 23 and 35, have been attacked in Clapham and Brixton in the space of a few weeks and police are investigating if the incidents are linked. Three other men have been arrested during the investigation. Two, aged 30 and 34, have been bailed pending further inquiries. A third man, aged 32, is still being questioned by police.

Detective Sergeant Gordon Barclay, who is leading the investigation, said: "We have had a good response following previous appeals. We would still like to advise women to remain vigilant when travelling at night and would also ask that anybody who may have any information regarding these offences to make contact with police."
