Hunt is on for Luton sex pest


Police are investigating two reports of sexual assaults in the Luton area which they believe may be linked.

On Saturday (4 July) at around 6.40pm, a man in traditional white Asian dress knocked at a woman’s door in Chester Avenue and entered uninvited. While inside the home he assaulted the victim by attempting to kiss and touch her.

On Tuesday (7 July) at 7pm, a man wearing similar attire let himself into a home in Dunstable Road and assaulted a woman by grabbing her arm and kissing it.

The offender in both incidents is described as being of slim build and aged between 40 and 60, and had told victims he was collecting money for a charity.

Detective Sergeant Michelle Lack said: “While neither of these women was injured, these are obviously highly distressing incidents.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who has knowledge of who was responsible for each of these assaults so that we can prevent further offences of this serious nature.” Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Rebecca Kitts, investigating both incidents, on 101, text 07786 200011 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
