Door to Door Rapist on the Run

Police in the West coast city of Gothenburg are hunting a man behind a spate of terrifying door to door sex attacks.

Police say the man has carried out two rapes, two attempted rapes and two sexual assualts but is believed to be behind as many as 35 attacks in one month, all of which happened with the suspect approaching buildings and going from flat to flat, ringing doorbells and trying to force his way inside.

Police press spokesperson Björ Blixter told the local Gothenburg Post that if the man is forced away from the door of one home, he'll go next door and try again.

Although Police have six official reports of sexual assualts including rape, after asking round the areas where the man is active, they received many more reports of attempted sexual assualt.

The man is said to be in his twenties and speaks with broken Swedish.
