Black cab rapist John Worboys has reportedly been questioned by police after new sexual assault allegations were made against him.
The Metropolitan Police said a 61-year-old man had been interviewed under caution last month in Yorkshire over the allegations that referred to historic sex attacks.
Worboys was jailed indefinitely in 2009 after being found guilty of 19 counts of rape, sexual assault and drugging against 12 victims.
Scotland Yard said the most recent allegations, which arose after an investigation was launched in January this year, include sexual assault and administering a substance with intent to commit a sexual offence.
The alleged offences are said to have taken place between 1997 and 2007.
The BBC are reporting that the person questioned was notorious sex attacker Worboys.
In a statement the force said: ‘An investigation was launched in January 2018 after a number of women contacted police with information.
‘Since then, officers have assessed all the information provided and established there are a number of allegations that required investigation.
‘Police also sought early investigative advice from the Crown Prosecution Service.’
Worboys will serve a minimum term of eight years for he attacks on 12 victims.
But police believe that in total he committed sex crimes against 105 women between 2002 and 2008 in the back of his black cab.
A decision earlier this year to release him was overturned by three High Court judges who said the Parole Board must make a ‘fresh determination’ in his case following a challenge by victims.
