Lisbon police chiefs confirmed that last Friday PJ officers detained a violent sex offender known as the Telheiras rapist.

The suspect, a 30-year-old engineer, is believed to have raped numerous victims, though did not have previous criminal convictions. He was arrested in Lisbon last week, PJ sources said.
Referred to as the Telheiras rapist, for more than a year the criminal had been raping underage girls inside buildings, always on a Tuesday, holding them at knife-point whilst forcing them to perform sex acts.
It is thought that the criminal has attacked more than 10 times over the past 12 months.
