1,000 CALLS ON THE MOST WANTED MAN.

Byline: JEFF EDWARDS

POLICE hunting the rapist who has attacked 10 women and girls said last night they received 1,000 calls just hours after releasing his e-fit.

They describe the computerised picture as an "extremely good likeness" of the man.

He has been dubbed the Trophy Rapist because he steals clothing or mobile phones from his victims. The picture was from a detailed description given by a 14-year-old girl he raped in Stevenage, Herts, two weeks ago.

He is muscular and stocky with tanned, leathery skin and speaks with a faint North-East accent. He is thought to be a smoker and often smells of drink. Police hope the e-fit will provide a breakthrough in the biggest manhunt ever for a sex offender.

Det Supt Mark Warwick of Thames Valley Police said: "This is a very, very dangerous man. Someone must know who he is."

The first attack was in Ashford, Kent, last November. He has also struck in London, Surrey, Berkshire and Hertfordshire.
