– Police are investigating two sex attacks that left both victims fearing for their lives.
The most recent incident was on Tuesday afternoon, when a 33-year-old woman was kidnapped and sexually assaulted several times over 30 minutes. She required hospital treatment after the attack near Croydon.
She had got off a bus on the corner of Mount Dandenong and Norton Roads about 4:15pm when a man driving a red sedan approached her. He asked to see her breasts then ordered her into his car, saying he had a knife and gun. The offender then broke the woman’s nose by punching her in the face and sexually assaulted her several times.
The offender drove her to Jumping Creek Road Reserve, about 10 kilometres away, where he sexually assaulted her again. He then took her phone and told her to get out of the car before driving away. The woman ran to the main road where she flagged down a passer-by for help.
Detective Senior Sergeant Sue Thomas said a 12-year-old girl may have been approached by the same man about 30 minutes earlier in Mooroolbark, but she ignored him.
He is described as having brown or auburn hair, a star-shaped tattoo on his left hand, and was wearing a camouflage cap and dark sunglasses.
Police have also released details of another unrelated sex assault. Vanessa, 39, from Springvale, was grabbed by the throat and sexually assaulted while driving home from work on July 3rd.
She thought her attacker was in “mortal danger” when he leapt into her car while she was stopped in traffic in Noble Park.
The shirtless and shoeless man got in the front passenger door and told Vanessa to drive away quickly as if he was being chased. He then grabbed her by the throat and sexually assaulted her.
She said that he appeared to be aged between 17 and 20 and that this was particularly disturbing, given she had a son a similar age. “That I find very tragic, that he’s so young.”
He is believed to be of Pacific Islander appearance with a solid, muscular build and short spiky hair and was wearing black jeans – Niño Bucci & Thomas O’Byrne


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
