A 13-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to two sex assaults on women in their twenties in the Kilburn area.
The teenager will be sentenced on 13 July.
Police said the first assault took place on Kilburn Park Road, Westminster near Augustine Primary School at approximately 10.35pm on Monday 1 June.
The victim, a woman in her 20s, was followed by the boy along Kilburn Park Road. He tried to engage her in conversation before touching her inappropriately.
The victim tried to avoid him but he attempted to touch her again. She managed to run into the Queens Head public house, where staff assisted her and police were called.
The second attack took place on Saltram Crescent, Kilburn at around 9.55pm on Wednesday 17 June.
The victim, also a woman in her 20s, was followed as she walked home from work. She had taken the bus before getting off at Carlton Vale at the junction of Pentland Road.
She walked through a park where she first noticed the boy. She continued to walk through an alleyway, believed to be on Malvern Road and turned on to Saltram Crescent.
The boy attempted to engage her in conversation and then touched her inappropriately. He pressed himself against her, to which she responded by pushing him away and calling out for help.
The boy ran off in the direction of the route in which they had walked.
