Two More Vicious Assaults On Women

ANOTHER two women have become the victims of vicious sexual assaults in the metropolitan area.
Despite the latest attacks and amid growing public outrage, police continue to assure the public that the number of attacks in Adelaide is not on the increase.
Sexual Crime Investigation Branch Senior Sergeant Paul Lewandowski said police were enlisting the help of the public to catch sex attackers.
"There is now a willingness by the public in making more reports to police about these attacks," he said yesterday.
"And by reporting these matters, it allows us (the police) to better investigate and also to bring warnings to the public."
Police came under fire earlier this week after The Advertiser revealed they had waited 18 days to tell the public about the alleged violent assault of two schoolgirls at Christies Beach.
A 30-year-old southern suburbs man was arrested on Tuesday but only after he allegedly attacked a 12-year- old girl.
In the latest incidents, a woman was sexually assaulted by two cyclists as she walked along a bike track at Kurralta Park yesterday.
The woman, aged in her late 20s, was walking near McArthur Ave about 4am when she was approached by the men.
Police said she was forced into a grassed area just metres from the path and sexually assaulted.
The men's bicycles were described as a silver Malvem Star racing bike and a Mongoose high range mountain bike, with blue front forks and handle bars and violet and white two-tone frame. The second bike had a red flashing tail light.
The victim was yesterday working with police to construct a composite image of her attackers.
"Certainly this is a cowardly and vicious attack," Sen-Sgt Lewandowski said.
After a separate attack, Elizabeth police are seeking information after a girl was sexually assaulted at Davoren Park about 3:30pm on Wednesday.
The girl was approached by a man on the corner of Petherton Rd and Crafter St and asked questions of a sexual nature. The man then indecently assaulted the girl and exposed himself before walking off.
The man was described as Caucasian, between 16 and 20 years of age, 170cms with a masculine build, short fair hair and a pock-marked face.
He was wearing a blue T-shirt with the number 7 on the front and the word Original on the back, blue track pants and old ripped blue sports shoes.
The attacks follow several others in the past few weeks.
In Walkerville on Tuesday at 8.20am, a girl was walking along Stephen Tce when she was approached by a man standing next to a white van.
After a brief altercation, the girl was able to break free and run from the man - she was not hurt in the attack.
Anyone with any information on any of these attacks should contact Crime Stoppers - 1800 333 000.
Yesterday, a man faced the Adelaide Magistrates Court charged with one count of indecent assault, two counts of common assault and two counts of carrying an offensive weapon over the Christies Beach and Coromandel Valley attacks.
An application for bail was refused and he was remanded in custody to appear again next week.
