Police are not seeking a serial sex attacker who uses a bicycle to hunt his victims. He targets Cambridge University and is known to have already attacked nine women, eight of them from the university.
The offender is claimed to have made the first struck in August 2010 and is now being hunted by Operation Majesty. A sex attacker rode a bicycle to grab young women at age from 10 to 32. However, he fled when women began to scream and stand up to him. The latest attack was made on Saturday. Although a young woman does not study at Cambridge University, the police are referring this case to previous attacks.
Dr Mark Pembroke, a senior tutor at Pembroke College
, has warned students, fellows and staff to be vigilant and not to go out alone at night.
Detective Sergeant Phil Priestley said: "He appears to have good local knowledge and is travelling to and from the offence locations on a bike. It is likely other people may have seen him during the morning of this latest incident. We have increased patrols in the areas where offences have been committed and would urge women to take the usual sensible precautions of not walking at night and early in the morning alone."
An e-fit image of the attacker has been already issued. It describes a white man, aged 20 to 30, of medium build, between 5ft 10in and 6ft, and physically strong.
Dr Pembroke wrote in his essay
: "You are requested to remain extremely vigilant when walking in and around the city, particularly after nightfall. Students who are travelling across Cambridge after dark on foot rather than on bicycles are urged to walk in pairs wherever possible and to carry a mobile phone and if possible a personal alarm."
A reward of £5,000 is offered by crime stoppers for information about a person who is responsible for the attacks.
