Clayton sex attack suspect approached other elderly women

Identikit of suspect
POLICE suspect a man who sexually assaulted an 86-year-old woman during an hour-long ordeal is preying on elderly women in suburban Melbourne.
The woman, 86, was walking towards a train station on Clayton Rd, Clayton, on February 8 when she was approached by a man about 4.50pm. Police say the man enticed the woman into his car and sexually assaulted her for up to an hour as he drove around.
The ordeal ended when the man dropped the woman off at an industrial area in Osborne Rd, Clayton South, about 6.30pm.
The woman then approached some workers at a nearby factory, who raised the alarm. She was taken to hospital for treatment.
Police believe the man may have approached a number of other elderly women in the area on the same day.
Police today released a digital likeness of the man.
"There is a man is out there preying on elderly women and we need help from members of the public to catch him," said detective Senior Sergeant Mark Langhorn.
"We believe someone out there may be able to identify this man and can help with our investigation."
Police also want to speak to a woman who contacted CrimeStoppers on February 16.
Witnesses or anyone with information are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au

Sex fiend who attacked woman, 86, tried to lure others in Clayton

A MAN being hunted for the abduction and rape of an 86-year-old woman tried to lure several other women into his car before the assault.
The sex crime squad continues to hunt the man after the attack in Clayton South last week, not far from the Clayton railway station.
The woman suffered injuries and was dumped on the side of the road in the suburb in Melbourne's southeast after the attack.
According to police, the elderly woman was walking along Clayton Rd towards the station when she was enticed into a car then subjected to attacks in the man's car over 90 minutes at about 4.50pm on Tuesday, February 8.
Today detectives established two information caravans to contact anyone else who may have seen the man.
Detective Mark Langhorn said that several women have already come forward to say they were also approached by the man on the same afternoon.
Coat linked to rape "We believe this man has spoken to several other females, engaging them in friendly conversation and trying to entice them into his car with an offer of providing them with assistance," Sen-Sgt Langhorn said.
Police were keen to speak anyone who had seen the manís light-colour four-door sedan.
Sen-Sgt Langhorn said officers also wanted to interview anyone who saw the elderly victim, who was wearing a distinctive burnt-orange coloured coat near Madeline Rd and Osborne Ave in Clayton.
"This incident happened in broad daylight so we think there are people out there who might have seen the offender, the car or the victim being picked up or dropped off in the area,Ē he said.
The caravans will be in place at Clayton and Dunstan roads and at Osborne Ave and Deals Rd until 8pm today.
Police are also conducting a widespread doorknock of the area.
Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Manhunt on after woman, 86, assaulted

POLICE are hunting a predator who lured an elderly woman into his car before sexually assaulting and dumping her on the side of a road. The woman, 86, was walking along Clayton Rd, near the Clayton Railway Station on Tuesday, when a man approached in a car about 4.50pm and offered her a lift.
After being coaxed into the man's light-coloured car, she was abducted, driven around, sexually assaulted and injured before being released by her attacker outside an industrial area an hour-and-a-half later in nearby Osborne Ave.
The traumatised woman walked into a factory where workers alerted authorities and she was taken to hospital.
The sexual crime squad's Det Sen-Sgt Robert Ridley said police were aware of some of the things the man had said to his victim.
Sen-Sgt Ridley said although police had spoken to the woman, details of the attack were sketchy.
"We don't know the exact words (he used to get her into his car)," he said.
"We've got a sketchy description because the victim's extremely traumatised, but we do know he's said to be 30 to 40 years of age and caucasian.
"She's definitely shaken up and she's got some injuries from the attack."
The woman was released from hospital and was being cared for by friends yesterday as investigators gathered more evidence.
CCTV footage from near Clayton Railway Station and the Osborne Ave industrial park was being collected and several witnesses were interviewed.
Any witnesses who saw the victim, who was wearing a burnt orange or red jacket and blue polo shirt about the time of the abduction, are urged to contact police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
