A pervert accused or raping and abusing multiple women and a man in and near a cemetery has been seized by police in Germany.
The alleged sick serial sex abuser is accused of having struck 10 times during six months before he was caught, reports local media, twice in the graveyard and eight times nearby.
His alleged victims are said to range in age from 19 to 84 and five of the attacks are regarded as rape.
Kamil Arisan, 29, from Kassel, Hesse, allegedly carried out all his attacks in and near the city’s main cemetery.
His alleged sex crimes began in February last year when he rang a neighbour’s doorbell and attacked her when she answered.
Prosecutors say that two months later (17th April), he attacked a man in a local club.
Arisan is said to have taken his bank card, mobile phone and cash before pinning him to the ground.
Then – say police – he “forced him to engage in sexual activity by using physical force.”
In his third alleged sexual assault, he is accused of having dragged a pregnant woman to the cemetery and of raping her on 28th May.
A week later (4th June), he allegedly climbed onto the balcony of a 70-year-old woman’s apartment and raped her.
Police said that he hit the poor woman so hard that he even broke her nose.
The week after (on 11th June), he reportedly got into a woman’s vehicle and allegedly tried to abuse her.
Three weeks later (29th June), he pretended he was injured and rang on another woman’s doorbell before allegedly trying to rape her.
In another case just 10 days later (9th July), he reportedly robbed an 80-year-old woman and fled away with her handbag, only to return to the cemetery a few hours later where he allegedly raped a 70-year-old woman.
He was caught some time later after the victims reported the cases and described him in detail.
DNA evidence meant Arisan was later charged with sexual assault and rape.
Prosecutor Andreas Thoene said: “The criminal police found that the individual crimes have parallels, especially in terms of the crime inspection and the crime scene.
“That was an important building block for the investigative work.”
Arisan has so far denied his involvement in the crimes.
The investigation is ongoing.
