A SEXUAL predator known as the “Rush Hour Prowler” was today jailed for six years after he carried out attacks on girls as young as eight.
Kevin Bond, 52, sexually assaulted girls and young women during a year-long period in South London.

The businessman, who managed Club 34 in Croydon, groped his innocent victims before sprinting off in broad daylight.
He was given his nickname because he would often carry out the random attacks between 8am and 10am and at 5pm.
A judge today told the pervert that his behaviour was “deeply shocking, violating and frightening” before jailing him for six years.
Woolwich Crown Court heard he targeted his first victim – a 13-year-old girl – when she was walking along a street in Orpington in October 2016.
Over the next 12 months he went on to target other girls, some as they made their way to school.
Judge Nicholas Heathcote Williams, QC, said: “What you did was deeply shocking, violating, frightening, distressing and disturbing as their victim impact statements recall.
“It also caused understandable wide-spread anxiety among parents, children travelling unaccompanied, schools and community groups. These were deplorable offences.”
Judge Williams said Bond had bought a nightclub which became profitable and he started taking cocaine and grew apart from his wife.
The judge said Bond began to watch porn, then launched his campaign of sexual assaults against schoolgirls and young women.
Judge Williams added: ‘All that remains is for me to pay tribute to the courage of the victims for speaking up about what happened and some of the young ones having the courage to fight back.’

CCTV footage which showed him fleeing the scene of one attack eventually led to his capture in January this year.
Bond, who owns a £675,000 home in Chislehurst, South East London, was charged with two attacks and told detectives he was innocent and was arrested in a case of mistaken identity.
However, he admitted 11 counts of sexual assault and three charges of sexual assault on a child under 13.
