    A man charged in connection with a series of sexual and physical assaults on women that took place in Surrey has entered guilty pleas.

    On Monday, which was supposed to be the first day of his trial in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, court records show that James Henry Reddemann admitted to two counts of sexual assault with a weapon, uttering threats and attempting to choke to overcome resistance.

    A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for December.

    On October 12, 2014, a distraught woman flagged down a patrol officer in the area of 144 Street and 64 Avenue. The woman, who was a sex-trade worker, told the officer that she had been assaulted by a male she had met nearby on King George Boulevard.

    Police, with assistance from police dog services, searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

    Two days later, another sex-trade worker reported a similar assault that had taken place about one month earlier. She described a similar suspect.

    On Oct. 20, 2014, police issued a warning to sex-trade workers and appealed to the public for information. A third complainant came forward following the appeal and the Surrey RCMP’s general investigation unit received a number of tips.

    Reddemann was arrested six days later.
