The 30-year-old Greek man who has been spreading terror in Marousi over the past few days attempted to assault another woman for the fourth time in a row, ultimately leading to his arrest.

Marousi police authorities were on the hunt, as the man had attempted more assaults reported by female victims. Most incidents had occurred at the underground crossing of Capodistriou Street with Vasileos Georgiou B’ Street; this time however, after his last spot was revealed, the man decided to move several blocks away, directly across the OAKA stadium. Once again, the man assaulted women early in the morning as they made their way to work.

At approximately 6:30 am on Wednesday, the last victim was walking on the street, when the 30-year-old perpetrator jumped in front of her and grabbed her violently, attempting to take her clothes off. The woman fought back and started screaming which alerted nearby neighbors to call for help. The perpetrator then ran off towards his usual spot, like he did the previous times.

The woman went to the Marousi Police Station — which was close to the location where she had been attacked — and soon after a police squad was mobilized to track down the man. A DIAS squad located restrained and arrested the perpetrator. Duct-tape was found in the man’s possession.

The man fit the description that most of the victims had reported to the police – overweight with glasses. The man was identified at the Marousi Police Station by his most recent victim, while more women have been called to identify him.
