A man has been found guilty of a series of sexual assaults in Brighton which he carried out over a number of months.

A jury at Brighton Crown Court on Friday (June 13) decided that Jude Krishnan, 22, of Montpelier Road, Brighton, was guilty of two attempted sexual assaults on May 30 2012 and November 18 2013, a sexual assault on January 17, three sexual assaults on February 2, and a further sexual assault on September 16 last year.

The jury could not reach verdicts on three further sexual assault charges on November 18 2013 and January 3 and 4 2013 and therefore these are to lay on file.

The court heard that this was a serious of attempted and sexual assaults on lone women which occurred in Brighton between May 2012 and September 2013. Krishnan would approach woman walking at night or in the early hours and indecently touch them over their clothing. He was arrested on February 3 last year.

Krishnan has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced on July 25.

After the case Detective Constable Dawn Robertson said: "After a complex investigation I am pleased that Jude Krishnan has been found guilty of seven offences. This was a series of sexual assaults offences committed over a nine month period which showed that he presented as a real danger to lone women.

"We hope that this gives confidence to other women to come forward and support the criminal justice system in the prosecution of sexual offences."
