A SEX attacker has been jailed for assaulting three women in Nottingham city centre in the space of just 35 minutes.

Police said Aaron Gyening had set out to "prey" on women in the early hours.

Two of his victims were clubbers, while the other was a customer in a takeaway.

The 21-year-old has been jailed for four years and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders' Register for life.

Nottingham Crown Court heard his first victim on a Wednesday last November was a 22-year-old student walking home from Oceana nightclub.

Gyening forced his way through the door of her student accommodation and subjected her to a serious sexual assault in a communal hallway. He fled when he was disturbed, walked to King Edward Street and started talking to another student, 23, who had also been to Oceana. He became increasingly threatening and then sexually assaulted her.

Prosecutor Dawn Pritchard said taxi driver Asim Javaid stopped after he saw the woman fall to the floor.

She got into his Hackney taxi and they followed Gyening as he visited a takeaway, where he made sexual remarks to a woman at the counter and grabbed her bottom. She alerted staff and he stopped what he was doing.

The victim, in her 20s, went to a police station to report the incident and Gyening was arrested in Forest Road West, Radford, minutes later.

The three assaults all happened between 2.05am and 2.40am.

Gyening pleaded guilty to assault by penetration and two other sexual assaults.

Judge Andrew Hamilton commented: "What induced you to commit these serious offences one cannot imagine."

He awarded £250 from the High Sheriff's Fund to Mr Javaid for his actions to help the second victim.

The court was told in mitigation that student Gyening, of Russell Street, Radford, was previously of good character and was entitled to credit for pleading guilty.

The judge praised police and said CCTV footage clearly captured the defendant's movements as he followed his victims through the streets.

After the hearing, Detective Sergeant Jim Adam said: "Gyening's sole intention that evening was to prey on women in Nottingham.

"Now he is in prison he will be prevented from carrying out more attacks and will be on the Sex Offenders' Register for the rest of his life.

"His victims, who were extremely distressed, have shown tremendous courage through- out the investigation.

"Our thanks must also go to the taxi driver, whose swift and public-spirited actions helped us."
