Crime in London: 3 women were sexually assaulted near the North London Underground in just 2 weeks

Three women were sexually assaulted less than five minutes away from a North London Underground station within two weeks.

Three separate incidents took place minutes away from Dollis Hill Subway Station in Willesden, at about the same time, and all over the weekend. The police treat them as attached.

The first assault took place at 11.25pm ​​on Saturday, August 28, when a 30-year-old woman was followed by a man and sexually assaulted on Fleetwood Road.

The second assault happened around 10:05 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 5, when a 21-year-old woman was followed by a man and sexually assaulted on Ellesmere Road.

The third assault happened at 10.15pm on Saturday, September 11, when another 21-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a man on Ellesmere Road.

A member of the public intervened in the two incidents on Ellesmere Road, but the suspect fled the scene on both occasions.

The three victims have all described the man as a mixed race with facial stumps, slender build and wearing black clothes.

Detective Inspector Jonny Newell, who led the investigation, said: “All of these assaults took place on a weekend, at a similar time and in close proximity to both the subway and each other.

“It is clear that the perpetrator is waiting at or near the metro station for the sole purpose of seeking out women to accompany him to a secluded area before carrying out his attacks.

“On each occasion, the victims have managed to sound the alarm, which caused their attacker to flee the scene. We are incredibly grateful to the two members of the public who came to their aid.

“All the women have understandably been shaken and we are doing everything we can to stop it again.”
