Sri Lankan Tamil man who assaulted 5 girls in UK faces jail

A sex attacker who stalked lone women before pouncing on them at night faces being locked up after police tracked him down due to his distinctive white audi A6. Sinuthujaan Yoganathan, 32, stalked at least six women before attacking them in Perivale, Northolt and Harrow in north west London.

He drove his white Audi before one of the attacks – and officers arrested him when they later found him driving the same car through the area.

They searched his house in Harrow and found a distinctive Scotland football shirt that one of the victims said he was wearing when he attacked. Five of the victims positively identified Yoganathan as their attacker.

Yoganathan was found guilty of five sexual assaults and one attempted sexual assault between April 2016 and July 2016 after a three week trial at Isleworth Crown Court.

Detective Inspector Tom Williams said: ‘I am pleased with this guilty verdict, especially for the brave victims who had to suffer Yoganathan’s attacks. Yoganathan gave ‘different versions of events’ at trial to his initial police interview and blamed someone else when shown CCTV footage of an attack, though he later admitted he was in the footage. He will be sentenced on 28 July.
