What is the driving force behind the latest wave of sexual assaults?

The last week has seen a string of horrific sexual assaults across the country, with police investigating and police forces stepping up patrols. 

The latest is the latest in a string in which young women have been sexually assaulted and even killed by the likes of the ‘incubuss driver’, a 24-year-old man from North London who is thought to be the driving Force behind a wave of assaults across Greater Manchester. 

Police have arrested two men over the weekend after a 24 year-old woman was raped in a parked car near a popular tourist attraction in Manchester.

Police have also arrested a 25 year-and-a-half-old and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. 

Earlier this week, a 24 month-old was raped on a London street in the early hours of the morning, with reports she was then forced to perform oral sex on the man.

The woman has since been released from hospital, but her attackers remain at large. 

It comes after another 24-month-old, a woman who was raped at a nightclub in north London, was attacked on a bus in the city centre on Sunday. 

On Friday, a 25-year old man from London was arrested after a woman was attacked in the West Midlands by a man who then threatened to kill her, a witness said.

This is a developing story.
