A 41 year old has admitted to charges in connection with the abduction and sexual assault of teenage girls in Bracknell.

Terry Michael Bryant man has pleaded guilty to 14 charges relating to the kidnap and sexual assault of teenage girls in Bracknell in November 2009 and May 2010.

The 41 year old from Waverley Road, Tottenham, London, appeared at Reading Crown Court on Friday 3rd September.

He'll be sentenced at the same court on Friday 8th October.

The charges relate to three separate incidents involving teenage girls in Bracknell.

At around 4.30pm on 4 November 2009, a 16-year-old girl was walking along a footpath in the Warfield area, when she was approached by a man who asked for directions. As she was replying to him, he grabbed her and forced her to walk to a car that was located nearby. She was taken to a location in Malt Hill, where she was subjected to a serious sexual assault.

At about 5.15pm on 6 May 2010, a 14-year-old girl was grabbed by a man in the Hanworth area and forced to walk with him along the street. However, she managed to escape without physical injury.

At around 6.30pm the same day (6/5), a 15-year-old girl was walking home when she was grabbed by a man in the Wildridings area. He forced her into a car before driving her to a location in Malt Hill, where he sexually assaulted her. Following the assault, he drove her to back to Wildridings, where he let her out of the car and she made her way home.

Terry Bryant was arrested on 2 June after a lot of appeals in the local press and media. He was charged with numerous offences the following day relating to the three incidents.

A public meeting was also held after the third incident in May so police could reassure worried parents in Bracknell.
