Man admits Christmas indecent assaults

A 31-year-old man has admitted a string of indecent assaults against eight women, including several which took place on Christmas Day.

Charged with eight counts, Adrian Florinel Dumitrache has pleaded ‘guilty’ to all of the offences which took place between 8 and 25 December last year.

He appeared in the Royal Court last week where he admitted four counts of sexual touching without consent; grave and criminal assault; committing an offence with intent to commit a sexual offence; common assault; and acting in a manner likely to cause an outrage of public decency.

Dumitrache was arrested on New Years’ Day after a week-long manhunt conducted by Jersey Police after reports came in claiming a cyclist was indecently assaulting women on Christmas morning. 

The 31-year-old has been remanded in custody until he is sentenced on 27 May.

Posting about the hearing, Jersey Police reminded members of the public: “Throughout this difficult period, we remain committed to investigating serious offences such as this. To report a crime ring us on [01534] 612612, or 999 in an emergency.”

Islanders can also report crimes anonymously through Crimestoppers either on 0800 555 111 or via their online form.
