Drivers quizzed over sex attacks on girls in Bracknell

The first victim said the man had put his grey beanie hat over her eyes

More than 100 drivers have been stopped by police investigating abductions and serious sex assaults on teenage girls in Bracknell, Berkshire.

Last Thursday a 14-year-old girl was grabbed by a man in the Hanworth area but escaped.

Two hours later a 15-year-old girl was dragged into a vehicle near Oxenhope in Wildridings, driven away and attacked.

The force said new information had emerged that a man had been seen hanging around in the Hanworth area.

Beanie hat

Police are linking the two incidents with another attack in November when a 16-year-old girl was forced into a car in Warfield, taken to a secluded place and attacked.

The first victim said the man had put his grey beanie hat over her eyes so she could not see where they were heading.

Det Supt Rob Mason of Thames Valley Police said: "New information has emerged to suggest that the offender was seen hanging around the... area from around 3pm that day.

"Did anyone see him? This was a couple of hours before the first offence was committed last Thursday.

"We are confident it was the same man because he was wearing the beanie hat.

"We know he used a car in the offences so it would helpful if anyone has seen this individual, particularly if they have seen him in or with a vehicle."

An e-fit has been released of a man police believe is responsible.

He is described as being of medium build, aged between 20 and 40, with brown eyes and a deep voice.
