This is awful and she was with her children. This must have been so traumatic. Find him and lock him up!

Shocking and terrifying for this poor lady and her children. Women should be able to walk anywhere alone or with children and be safe from sick people like that.

sought out the group of men who are always gathered and pissed up morning, noon and night just over the road to this cycle track. Maybe check some of them out.

Un-related but remember or even Google this name, karl Stockbridge, he's a harlow man and lived opposite my family home, he's back in harlow, seen him twice now, he got 14yrs for raping and videoing himself doing it to a child, a child I believe was his own, he's served about 8yrs for this or there abouts, angers me to see him back in society and back in my home town, be aware of him people.

Sexually assaulting someone is terrible in itself but to sexually assault someone while their out walking with their children 😳😳 their is something clearly very wrong with this person mentally and he needs to be apprehended ASAP!

I have just read up on about karl stockbridge and he is much older than the man involved in this recent sexual attack on a woman,although i am shocked that this sick pervert only served 8 years out of 14 and is walking amongst us. I thought that the focus was on women and girls becoming safer in Essex. Good info from David.Thankyou for sharing this.

Cp, it's hard to walk past this man knowing what he did and the fact that he used to come into our family home as a friend and us not knowing what lies beneath, just goes to show you think you know someone, thankyou for taking the time to read the press report.

Can I just add something here Karl Stockbridge sexually assaulted my niece not his child and yes he is back in Harlow lives not far from me yet this poor girl has to live with this in her mind for life

Michaela, sorry for getting part of this wrong, I feel for you and your family, this is a vile and disgusting individual and it angers me even more that he can return to a place so close to his victim, hope your neice is now moving forward with her life.

I agree with Andy Kewinbut it prob wont be allowed to be put on here. The system is all wrong,we all have a right to know where this sick person lives. Its a joke,the worse you are you seem to get protected.
