TWO women were sexually assaulted in separate attacks in Somerset on Thursday.
Police believe the same man carried out the attacks and are appealing for help to catch him.
The first incident happened at 2.30pm in Frank Foley Parkway, Burnham-on-Sea.
A woman was approached by a stocky Asian man in his 20s who chatted to her before sexually assaulting the victim.
The second attack took place at 5.50pm in Chedzoy Lane, Bridgwater, where a woman was approached by a man of similar description who asked her to get into his car.
When she declined he grabbed her and sexually assaulted the woman.
Police are appealing for witnesses in the area at the time, particularly the female driver of a red or maroon estate vehicle which dropped a young black woman at her home in the Chedzoy area of Bridgwater.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
