'Stinky sex creep' wanted over attack in Melbourne laneway

A stinky sex creep has been caught exposing himself in a Melbourne laneway just days after trying to assault a woman in the same lane, according to police.

The man grabbed the 31-year-old woman and propositioned her for sex at the rear of the Preston beauty salon at about 2.40pm on March 29.

The woman, from Fawkner, was able to break free from his grip but not before the man with bad body odour stole her mobile phone and fled via the laneway.

Victoria Police say the same man was seen exposing himself in the same laneway just two days later.
