A "PREDATORY" teenager who sexually assaulted lone women over a five week period faces jail.

Sakshat Chopra grabbed women, sexually assaulted or harassed them for sex.

Included in the charges were fives offences committed against women in Coley Avenue and nearby Aveley Walk, all on one day.

A jury at Reading Crown Court found Chopra guilty of all five counts, which took place on December 4 last year.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said a total of nine women, aged between 20 and 52, were attacked between November 6 and December 11, last year.

He was convicted of five counts of sexual assault, three counts of committing an offence with intent to commit a sexual offence, three counts of common assault and one count of exposure after an eight day trial. He denied all the charges.

Chopra, 19, of Wensley Road, Coley, is set to be sentenced at Reading Crown Court on November 9.

Detective Constable Phil Stephens said: “After a complex investigation I am pleased that Chopra has been found guilty of 12 offences.

“This was a series of sexual assaults committed over a six week period which showed he presented a real danger to lone women. I would like to thank the victims for their continued support throughout this case which enabled the police to secure these convictions.

“The victims endured a predatory attack and it took great courage for them to come forward and support the prosecution."
