A man who grabbed a woman in Sydney's south-west late last year and attempted to drag her away is believed to have stalked her two days before, police say.

On December 10, a 31-year-old woman was grabbed from behind as she walked along Leylands Parade at Belmore.

The attacker covered her mouth and dragged her towards a unit block but she was able to free herself and the man fled, police said.

Two days earlier, the same man is alleged to have stalked the same victim as she left Belmore Railway Station about 11pm.

The woman noticed a man walking closely behind her and fearing for her safety ran away.

After examining CCTV footage, police believe the man also attempted to follow another unidentified woman along  Leylands Parade prior to attacking the victim.

"After leaving Belmore Railway Station, the woman appears to become aware she is being followed and seeks refuge in the front yard of a house," NSW police said in a statement.

Police believe the man also approached and followed a number of women on December 22.

They have released CCTV footage in the hope of identifying the man and ask anyone with information to come forward.

On one occasion in the footage, the man appears to be wearing a black t-shirt, white striped pants and is carrying a backpack. In other vision, believed to be of the same man, he is wearing dark shorts and a blue shirt, and on another occasion, dark shorts with a black t-shirt with a Pepsi Max logo on the back.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
