Violent attack by rapist feared

A sex attacker who indecently assaulted two boys could strike again, a senior detective warned. Police said scientific evidence proved the same man was responsible for the attempted rape of an 11-year-old boy in Newmarket, Suffolk, in September and the rape of a 14-year-old near Braintree, Essex, in March.

"In both attacks the boys did not offer any resistance," said Detective Superintendent Peter Worobec. "My fear is that if he strikes again and if resistance is offered, there is a possibility that he may get violent." In both cases the attacker was described as being of Mediterranean or mixed-race appearance. He had black hair, was in his 20s, of average build and height, clean-shaven, had an East Anglian accent and wore a blue denim jacket and jeans.
