A SEXUAL predator, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for the rape of a Great Harwood teenager and two other women, might be quizzed by police over more attacks.
Jekyll and Hyde character Shaun Greenwood, 42, was sentenced to a minimum term of seven-and-a-half years last September, but since his conviction two more potential victims have come forward including a woman from Oswaldtwistle.
Detectives have said the women had accepted advances from Greenwood who had then taken advantage of them, but at this stage neither wanted to pursue their claims.
Greenwood, of Burnley, who brutally raped an 18-year-old in her home in Great Harwood in 2002, went on to rape a young women in Nelson on New Year's Eve 2005 and another women in Burnley a month later.
Detective Inspector Neil Hunter, who led the Great Harwood inquiry, said he believed someone as "predatory and dangerous" as Greenwood was capable of a string of undetected offences.
He said: "I don't believe somebody who committed such a serious offence in 2002 could then not offend until 2005. It makes me uncomfortable that somebody could attack in Great Harwood then wait three years to attack again.
"For such a serious offence in Great Harwood I have difficulty in believing that was his first offence. I do believe it is worth our while visiting Greenwood in prison but only when the time is right."
Greenwood could be questioned in the next six months but it is unlikely to take place until he is transferred to a longer-term prison and detectives believe he is in the right state of mind to talk.
Det Insp Hunter said the meeting would be used to gather information which could help probation officers make future decisions about Greenwood's behaviour and eligibility for parole.
