A 14-YEAR-OLD boy has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting five different women in Leeds.
Women were attacked in the Little London, Headingley and Woodhouse areas of the city over the last two weeks – sparking fears a sexual predator was on the loose.
All of the attacks involved a similarly-described male and cops have now made an arrest.
In the most recent attack, a 55-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at 6.15pm on Thursday night in Little London.
She told him she was calling the cops and the young man fled the scene.
The first incident unfolded at 7pm on February 5 when a 30-year-old woman was walking towards Little London.
She was grabbed from behind and sexually assaulted.
Then at 5.10pm on February 4, a 19-year-old woman was sitting at a bus stop in Headingley when a young man sexually assaulted her.
At about 5pm on February 3, a 29-year-old woman was walking along Grosvenor Hill, Woodhouse when she was sexually assaulted.
Police believe the attacks and one further sexual assault are linked.
A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Police said: “A 14-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of five sexual assaults and remains in police custody at this time.
“The incidents are being investigated by Leeds District CID.”
