Police: Man wanted over two attacks on sex workers

Detectives hunting a man wanted in connection with a sex worker killing said that it is "imperative" they trace him "as soon as possible".

Robert Richard Fraser is wanted in connection with the death of prostitute Maria Duque-Tunjano and an attack on another woman in Paddington, London.

We have established that Maria was last seen alive on Tuesday, 28 January. We also understand she was in the company of a man and our primary focus is to trace him as part of this investigation.

It is now our belief that this man was also responsible for an attack on another female sex worker in Paddington. It is imperative that we trace him as soon as possible.

We have spoken to organisations with links to those who work in the sex industry to make them aware of this incident and pass on the message that personal safety of sex workers is of paramount importance.

– Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command
