Serial Rapist Says Attacks Were A Birthday Present To Himself

Serial Rapist Says Attacks Were A Birthday Present To Himself

A sick sex fiend who boasted of carrying out more than 100 rapes in his lifetime has told police: "I gave myself these girls as a birthday gift."

Valery Makarenkov, 67, preyed on women in the Russian capital Moscow for 27 years by strangling his victims until they lost consciousness, then raping them and stealing their money and valuables.

And incredibly despite using the same modus operandi, and the fact that all the attacks took place in the two months around his birthday, local police never got on the trail of the serial rapist.

The last crime was committed in a park in the city in May when Makarenkov attempted and failed to rape a 29-year-old woman. His victim was able to fight him off and got a good look at him after pulling off his mask. After escaping from the attack, the woman alerted police nearby and was later able to identify Makarenkov after he was found.

The first reported incident was during the years of Communism but only now is set to find a closure. The exact number of the victims is still not known, but it is believed he has raped at least 108 women during the last 27 years. When the husbands, fathers and brothers of the women, whose live were changed forever found out that the criminal was caught, they gathered outside the courthouse where he was detained.

According to police information, the crimes were not planned. Makarenkov acted spontaneously, depending on the situation. He had no preference in the age or the social status of the women - he only cared that they would not be able to resist.

The birthday rapist said they were a birthday gift to himself. He attacked the women in all districts of Moscow and escaped afterwards on his bike.

Alexei Zozulskyy, the chief investigator, stated that the most of the rapes happened in May and June either side of his birthday on 27 May.
