A London cabbie convicted of luring women into his black taxi, addling them with a date-rape drug and raping them may have attacked more than 200 victims.
Officially, cops have linked John Worboys to 85 assaults between 2002 and 2008, but investigators say he’s responsible for at least twice as many.
“He is probably the most prolific sex offender caught in the U.K. to date,” a police source told the London Sun. “It’s safe to say he has claimed at least 200 victims.”
A former stripper and porn actor, Worboys stalked clubs, offering party girls champagne to celebrate a bogus lottery win. The bubbly was spiked and would knock them unconscious.
After the 51-year-old was arrested in 2007, he was released on bail and attacked three dozen more women, the paper reported. He was convicted last week on 19 charges.
