Serial rapist in Canberra

By OzChick - 22 February 2006 2

As reported by ABC News Online and the SMH it is believed that a serial sex attacker has been attacking women since 2002 in the Northside areas of Canberra.

Police are calling on everyone to lock their windows at night and to report if they see anyone acting suspiciously.

Considering that one of the attacks was on a neighbour of mine who was seriously hurt, I am deeply concerned that this animal is still out there and is sadly gaining more confidence in his attacks as they are becoming more frequent. So everyone please keep your eyes and ears open for this man.

[Ed. The police media release is here. They also issued a warning following the January attack to lock windows and so on, which we covered here.]

UPDATE The CT story on this tells us the police have set up a 20-man team specially to find the offender.

What’s Your opinion?

In 2002? Is that what they call ‘early warning’?

The police appear to be taking this issue very seriously. My wife was assaulted today at 15:00 on Maribyrnong Oval in Kaleen (though it appears this was an attempted robbery gone wrong – be careful if you live in north Kaleen), and the police focussed fairly heavily on establishing whether or not this may be related, along with getting all the appropriate details.
