A sex attacker who assaulted a woman in a deserted train station has been apprehended after she identified him by tattoos on his arms.
Elias Kajue, 22, grabbed the 23-year-old woman while she was waiting for a train, The Sun reports.
He dragged her into a subway where he tried to rape her but a passing cyclist raised the alarm and scared him off.
While Kajue escaped on a mountain bike, his victim remembered the distinctive script of the large tattoos on his arms.
Police matched the description with a database they keep of offenders' distinctive features and used the evidence to convict Kajue of sexual assault.
He was jailed for an indefinite period but will have to serve at least six years.
The case is reminiscent of an arrest last October when an aspiring criminal with his name and date of birth tattooed on his neck broke into a "bait car" packed with cameras.
"We get such excellent images from these cameras that there is often — and never more so than in this case — no doubt who the criminal is," Supt Ian Wylie was quoted by the BBC as saying.
"Criminals won't be tolerated in Bristol and we will keep catching them and bringing them before the courts."
Aarron Evans, an illiterate man of no fixed address, was sentenced to seven months in jail.
The capture car — known as a "honeypot" — is a common technique used by British police to catch criminals in the act.
