Copenhagen Police are asking the public for their help in connection with an investigation into several cases of assault against young women that took place in Nørrebro and Østerbro over the past six months.

The police are looking for one man who might have been involved in at least 10 cases.

In five of the cases, the perpetrator violated the women’s modesty, in 3 cases he violently attacked them, and in 2 cases he tried to rape the women.

Followed them in night
The female victims were all aged between 18 and 32, and were secretly followed home between 2:00-6:00 am by the suspect.

However, he once attacked a woman at about 22:00 and in two of the cases he attacked the women out on the street.

In some of the cases, the perpetrator was on a bike or seen cycling away.

The assaults took place near Frederikssundsvej, Nørrebrogade, Nørrealle, Jagtvej and Lyngbyvej on multiple weekends from June 13 to November 1.

Call for witnesses
The perpetrator has been described as a male of Middle Eastern origin, 25-35 years old,  175-185 cm high, of average build, with very short black hair and possibly with stubble or a trimmed beard.

He was seen wearing a grey and green hoodie or a jacket and loose black trousers.

He spoke Danish with an accent, and English.

Copenhagen Police are already following several leads but would like to hear from other possible victims or from any witnesses who might have seen a man matching these descriptions.
