Cardiff sexual assaults

A man has been charged with rape in connection with one of three separate sexual assaults in Cardiff in just five days.

Remus Hamza, 40, from Riverside, Cardiff, will appear at the city's magistrates court today over the alleged attack on a 20-year-old woman in the Welsh capital's civic centre on Sunday.

South Wales Police continues to investigate two other attacks, the second of which took place in the early hours of Tuesday morning when another 20-year-old woman was attacked in Cathays Terrace.

The third assault, on a 19-year-old woman, took place in Gorsedd Gardens in the civic centre at around 4.30am on Thursday.

Police later arrested a 22-year-old man from Cardiff over the latest attack but no charges have been brought.

Officers reissued an appeal for witnesses to contact them on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
