SURREY – Police believe a man alleged to have attacked three Surrey prostitutes may have other victims who have not yet come forward.
James Henry Reddemann, 35, of no fixed address, has been charged with sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon, two counts of assault, three counts of attempting to choke to overcome resistance and two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.
Reddemann was to remain in custody until his next date in provincial court, which was to be Wednesday (Nov. 5).
The Surrey RCMP has released Reddemann’s photo to the public; see photo at Thenownewspaper.com.
“We want to ensure if there are more victims out there, that they come forward,” Cpl. Bert Paquet explained.
Reddeman was arrested by police on Oct. 26.
Surrey Mounties had been hunting for a man with crooked teeth who allegedly sexually assaulted two prostitutes, in separate incidents, after leading them on foot to a secluded area.
Police said the suspect went by the name “James” or “Jeff.”
The first attack is alleged to have happened Oct. 12. The distraught woman flagged down a police officer near 144th Street and 64th Avenue and said a man she had met on King George Boulevard had assaulted her. She told police she escaped her attacker and called for help.
Six days later, another prostitute told police she had a similar experience on Aug. 5, with a man of similar description. Police issued a press release last week and, subsequent to that, the third woman contacted police on Saturday (Oct. 25).
Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
