    Canada - Ottawa, Ontario. Cops fear serial rapist is operating in city.

    http://www.ottawasun.com/2013/10/10/...rk-in-the-city

    "Cops fear they have a serial rapist on their hands.

    Police sources say detectives determined there was just too much in common with a series of recent sexual assaults -- and the description of the suspect for them -- not to be related.

    An announcement on the hunt is expected Friday morning.

    The most recent incident was the rape of a 25-year-old woman who was walking back from the Heron Transitway station Monday around 10 p.m.

    A man at the intersection of Lasalle St. and Aldea Ave. came up from behind, grabbed her and dragged her past the children's playground equipment at Heron Park, and raped her in the bushes".

    "Police describe her attacker as having short, dark hair, between 20 and 30 years old, around six feet tall and having a medium, athletic build -- a description shared in at least two previous attacks.

    The assaults occurred over the last 17 months -- and there are concerns that the individual may be responsible for seven more attacks in the area, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

    In the three linked cases, police say the victims were choked -- and that the suspect may show "a preference for this type of behavior in his personal and intimate relationships."

    "OTTAWA — Crimes are solved by information. And the genus for cracking a case is usually the public.

    Look at the accompanying Ottawa police composites . They’re not true pictures, but an amalgam of key facial features of a serial rapist responsible for at least three attacks in the city. Seven additional cases may be linked.

    Somebody knows this guy. Maybe it’s your ex-boyfriend, or someone at work or school. If you’re saying that to yourself, police want to hear about it. Every little bit of information will help.

    This man’s sexual fantasy — attacking, choking and sexually defiling female strangers — has turned real. The erotic value he gets from it overpowers fears he may have once had of being apprehended. He’s now acting out and willing to take increasingly big risks.

    Where it stops is anyone’s guess. Experience suggests it’s not a big jump from sexual sadism to sexually motivated homicide. There’s a very fine line between choking and asphyxiation"

    "Dugal said the suspect may show a proclivity to choking in his personal or intimate relationships.

    The suspect is described by police as a man with dark hair, possibly of middle eastern descent, who spoke English, possibly with an accent. Police said he is between 20 and 30 years old and is between 5-feet-9-inches and 5-feet-11-inches tall. He is described as having a slim to medium build with thin facial hair.

    The suspect also has a prominent nose and thick eyebrows,
    police said.

    Witnesses have said the man takes care of his appearance and is described as a “fashionable or neat dresser.”

    Wonder how those two composites might compare to the one released in the Valerie Leblanc case?

    The number of sexual assaults is at a high, looking at this article.

    http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/hu...925/story.html

    Wonder how much access to live surveillance cams LE has in the areas favored by this attacker?

    Details appear sparse about of his method(s) of attack in each of these cases - time of day, lighting, noisy versus quite area, where does he hide, does he stalk then attack versus appears to come out of nowhere, etc... preferences in the type of woman he attacks...

    Wonder if he checks out an area and plans during the day before attacking at night? Daytime surveillance cams of areas were attacks took place?

    But amid the sparse information released so far, one angle is beginning to take form. This appears to be an “organized” calculating criminal who devises his attacks to avoid detection. That may give police clues about his personality. Organized predators, for example, are often socially adept and can appear psychologically stable. This man may have a wife, fiancee or girlfriend and a good job.

    (The opposite is a “disorganized” perpetrator acting haphazardly and on opportunity, such as grabbing the first woman, any woman, who comes along.)

    The organized criminal also is not stupid. He’s not going to put himself in a position where he’s too vulnerable. While many criminals operate in geographic zones where they feel comfortable, such as neighbourhood where they grew up or work, the three confirmed and seven possible attacks in this case run from Barrhaven to Orléans.

    Interactive Map provided by CBC of the assaults

    https://a.tiles.mapbox.com/v3/darcyc....4339/-75.6031

    Ottawa police say they are actively pursuing the more than 100 tips they have received from the public since issuing a warning about a serial predator last week.

    Incidents happened between August 2012 and October 2013

    The assaults happened between August 2012 and October 2013 on Banner Road, Lancaster Road and Aldea Avenue. Police sources said the cases were linked with DNA evidence.

    Aug. 5, 2012, at about 3 a.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted at her home on Banner Road.
    June 26, 2013, at about 10 p.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted on a footpath between Lancaster Road and Erinbrook Crescent.
    Oct. 7, 2013, at about 9:50 p.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted on Aldea Avenue near Lasalle Street.


    While police are confident the suspect is linked to three files, they believe he may be linked to seven others:

    Late March 2013, at about 5 a.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted in the 2600 block of Draper Avenue. In this case, police released surveillance video from inside the apartment building.

    June 1, 2013, at about 4 a.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted on Laurier Avenue near Chapel Street.
    Sept. 1, 2013, at about 4:30 a.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted in a park at 6376 Bilberry Dr.
    Oct. 16, 2013, at about 10:45 p.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted in the 2400 block of Baseline Road between Woodroffe Avenue and Greenbank Road.
    Dec. 17, 2013, at about 11:15 p.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted on Broadway Avenue near Craig Street.
    Dec. 18, 2013, at about 11:15 p.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted in a park near the 1100 block of Bordeau Grove.
    Jan. 5, 2014, at about 10 p.m.: A woman was sexually assaulted in the 600 block of Chapman Mills Drive.

    14 months between the first & second attack and 8 months between the second & third attack

    makes me wonder if he was deployed or away on business and attacking somewhere else during those time periods

    ok, those #'s (which are from the linked article) don't match up with the dates in the post above this one (which are also from the linked article) ... (more like 11 & 3 months?)

    Perhaps those " active " times are when the perp's partner is expecting?
