Man admits raping, assaulting over 1,000 women

Forty six-year-old Joerg P. admitted to more than 1,000 offences against women in a crime spree that spanned 22 years. The trial has begun in Germany, Daily Mail reported.
Joerg used a trick from film "The Silence Of The Lambs" to lure his victims into feeling bad for him.

While in the movie, the killer fakes a broken arm to get his prey to help him and then hits them on the head, Joerg pretended to have a similar injury while knocking on doors and asking to use the toilet.

He has not only confessed to 20 rapes in Holland, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg, he has also asked for another 1,000 sex offences to be taken into consideration.
He admitted that he has a burning hatred of intelligent women and told a court in Dusseldorf that he had an insatiable need to degrade them.

"I wanted to avenge myself on intelligent women," he was quoted as saying.
The court was told that his poor reading and writing skills led to a personality disorder and the need to 'prove' himself sexually.

He would stake out victims' homes for hours to make certain they were alone before attacking.

"It caused me a lot of suffering but I could not help myself," he told police when he was arrested in March.

Joerg claimed that he visited prostitutes to try to rid himself of his urges but "nothing worked".
