A notorious sex attacker from South-East Norway has been charged on Friday for raping two 14-year-old girls and infecting them with Chlamydia, bringing his tally of sex crimes on underage girls to 84 in under two years.
The 20-year-old is charged with 84 crimes on a total of 46 underage girls, the youngest being 12-years-old, said Lillehammer Byavis.

His latest crimes include two counts of rape of 14-year-old girls, sexual intercourse with minors, and knowingly infecting his victims with Chlamydia. He was also charged for forcing under-age victims to take photographs or video of themselves naked or in sexually explicit poses.

In autumn 2013 the same man was charged with the sexual assault against at least 30 girls over a period of two years. This charge was further extended in May of this year.
 
The case first came to light after the man's then 18-year-old girlfriend reported him to the police last year. She discovered 60 video clips of young girls on her boyfriend's computer. Police later seized many pornographic pictures and several of attacker's victims were identified from the evidence.
 
The man's lawyer, Kåre Lund, said to Byavisen: “He admits having had sexual intercourse with girls below minimum age.”
 
Lund refused to give further comment on the charge or any other circumstances behind the case.
 
The trial of the man will take place in South Gudbrandsdal district court in October this year.
