A 49-year-old family man was charged on Thursday with 15 sexual assaults against teenaged girls and a whole 41 girls have been called to testify against him.


Copenhagen Police said that a 49-year-old man will face charges of rape, indecent exposure and unlawful coercion for a series of sexual assaults on teenagers that he lured over the internet. 
A police spokesman told Ritzau that the man has been in custody since July but the case has been kept secret so as to not interfere with an ongoing investigation. The case could extend far further than the 15 counts. 
“We have identified 41 girls who will testify in the case,” Commissioner Hans Erik Raben told Ritzau. 
Raben said that the man lured 13 and 14-year-old girls by offering them modelling jobs. The girls were contacted over social media, but police didn’t elaborate on which sites were used. 
Raben told TV2 News that the case points to the importance of parents keeping an eye on their children’s web usage. 
“It is a case like this that makes one say to parents yet another time that they should be aware of paedophilia online. I encourage all parents to take a peak over their kids’ shoulders when they are on the internet,” he said.
