Three Dunedin women have been left traumatised, after they were sexually assaulted on St Patrick's Day.

Two 19-year-olds were in the same room in a Dundas Street house, when a young man walked in and sexually assaulted them at about 8pm.

He was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, and is described as being in his 20s, with short dark hair and dark skin.

A woman was also attacked in a separate incident on Leith Way, around 9.15pm, after she was pushed over while walking towards UniCol.

The man is described as a Caucasian in his early 20s, nearly five-foot-11, of medium build, with long, dark, curly hair tied back.

Detective Senior Sergeant Kallum Croudis said Police are keeping an open mind about whether the attacks may be connected.
