Derby Crown Court heard how 36-year-old Csaba Kiss committed the sexual assaults in a 13-week ‘campaign against lone women’.

The attacks – mainly took place in the city centre – between July 29 and November 4, with Kiss following his victims on his bicycle on each occasion, before grabbing or touching them sexually and then riding off.  

One of the women, aged 19, even became a victim twice.  

Reading out the details of each of the 22 counts, Prosecutor Sarah Knight explained the impact on the women.

She said: ‘They were upset, angry, anxious and, in some cases, were left crying.

‘One of the victim said what happened to her left her feeling ‘horrible and seriously frightened’. The youngest victim was just 13.’

Miss Knight said the first sexual assault happened against a 17-year-old in Osmaston Road on July 29.

She said: ‘She was alone and the defendant cycled up behind her, grabbed her to the bottom then cycled away.

‘The cycling away was to be a prevalent way he would operate throughout the offences.’

Miss Knight added that Kiss carried out a ‘campaign against lone women’.

The court heard that during the period when Kiss carried out the attacks, Kiss twice travelled home to see his wife and daughter in his home country of Hungary. 

The hearing was told how Kiss moved to the UK from Hungary in 2016.
