The first incident happened near the car park at Wellington Monument on the Blackdown Hills, between 3pm and 4pm on Wednesday 6 September, while the second was in the same car park, at about 5.10pm on the same day.

The most recent incident was at about 9am on Tuesday 12 September on the bridleway leading to the car park at Cothelstone Hill in the Quantocks.

Police say the description of the man in each case is: aged 40 to 50, of medium or stocky build, with longer-length brown hair. On one occasion he was said to be wearing black jogging bottoms, while another time he wore jeans, a checked shirt and a brown leather jacket.
