A weekly newspaper is offering readers a £500 reward in a bid to catch an attacker who has assaulted nine women since January.
The Whitstable Gazette produced a poster to be displayed in the windows of people’s homes as well as shops and newsagents in an effort to jog people’s memories.
The poster has also been turned into a news bill and readers can download a version via the company’s KentOnline website.
The story – and the poster – also featured on the KM Group title’s front page this week.
Editor Leo Whitlock said: “We are determined to do all we can to help the police track down whoever is responsible for these attacks.
“Whitstable is a gorgeous seaside town on the north Kent coast and this sort of thing simply does not happen.
“We wanted to play our part in helping Kent Police to catch whoever is responsible.”
Since January, nine women have been assaulted with the latest incident involving a plucky 80-year-old who punched her attacker in the mouth.
