"A male suspect has been identified and is currently in custody," said a Metropolitan Police spokesman.

"Despite this arrest, officers believe there could be more victims in the area and are asking them to contact police.

"The area in question is bordered by Blackfriars Road, Stamford Street and Waterloo Road.
