I would also ask that if anyone has images of the suspected offenders or of the incidents taking place, that they do not share these with other members of the public or on social media, as this could potentially jeopardise the investigation. Instead please contact officers via 101 and share the images with the investigation team.

Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone with information that could help with their enquiries to please contact the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
