1 July 2002 The second attack follows an eight-month gap when no assaults were reported. A 12-year-old girl was cycling down Bagshot Road in Bracknell, Berkshire, when she was grabbed off her bike and raped.

11 July 2002 A 30-year-old woman was raped on a footpath off Brambletye Road in Earlswood, Surrey at 10.30am.
