Isle of Dogs sex attacker may have struck several times
POLICE want more information on a man preying on women walking alone in the Isle of Dogs area.
Officers are linking three separate attacks since last November – two of which have seen the victims sexually assaulted.
Investigators now believe there could be several other victims who are yet to come forward and report similar attacks on them.
Police were first alerted on November 3 after a woman was attacked as she walked towards her home along Undine Road, E14.
The suspect had approached the 36-year-old just after 7pm and grabbed her from behind. He sexually assaulted the woman before running away.
Investigating officers are now linking this incident to at least two other similar attacks including one where a woman was grabbed as she walked along Mast House Terrace, E14 on January 20.
The suspect approached the 29-year-old victim at 6.50pm and sexually assaulted her. She screamed and he ran away.
