This is the terrifying moment a sex predator chases a schoolgirl before attacking her in broad daylight then flees after he’s chased by her father.

CCTV shows Irtiza Abbas following a 15-year-old in northern Birmingham in April.

Abbas, 25, followed her closely along a street and looked around to make sure he was alone before attacking her.

The terrified teenager bravely rang her father who was driving nearby. He picked his daughter up and they drove around the area looking for Abbas.

They spotted the 25-year-old and the father tried to apprehend him but following a tussle he escaped and fled the scene.

The father’s dashcam shows Abbas running down a residential street.

This was not his first offence, as Birmingham Crown Court also heard he attacked a university student in January near Aston University in the same city.

He followed the 22-year-old along the road to make sure she was on her own before grabbing her and sexually assaulting her in the street.

Abbas was jailed for two years after admitting sexually assaulting both victims.

West Midlands Police launched a manhunt and officers painstakingly pieced CCTV together linking the assaults and Abbas was identified.

Officers swooped on his home on April 22 and found clothing that matched those worn by the attacker.

Abbas denied two counts of sexual assault but changed his plea to guilty when he appeared at Birmingham Crown Court.

He was jailed for two years last Friday but police fear he may have attacked other women and girls who have not come forward.

Detective Inspector Joe Davenport said: ‘We strongly believe due to the nature of the offences that Abbas may have committed more offences.

‘CCTV has shown him lingering on the streets and carefully selecting his victims.

‘He would follow them to make sure they were on their own before he struck.

‘Although he’s pleaded guilty to two offences there’s a real time line gap and we have really strong suspicions that he may have offended again and again.

‘Thanks to the support of the victims and their bravery and our teams’ efforts in tracing every single piece of CCTV that we could, we’ve managed to take a serial offender and a potentially dangerous man, whose offences were deliberate, methodical and repeated, off the streets of Birmingham.

‘If anyone feels that something similar has happened to them and that they’ve not come forward before, we’d ask them to reconsider.

‘Please contact me or one of my team and we promise that we will take your account seriously.’
