A Somali migrant has been arrested for allegedly assaulting 21 women during a series of unprovoked attacks in Eskilstuna near Stockholm, Sweden.

Police say the 22-year-old suspect from Somalia first caught the attention of local authorities when several women reported being punched in the face and spat on by a "very dark-skinned man" who was riding a bicycle.

During their hunt, investigators had reportedly named the elusive military-aged Somalian; "The Bicycle Man."

Police arrested the suspect last week and charged him for a number of cases alongside the charges for the vicious attacks.

Police finally succeeded in arresting the man after a search that started last summer.

The unnamed Somali migrant was arrested on Friday with probable cause for a large number of cases of assault, abuse, fraud, and even illegal threats, Fria Tider reports.

Police believe "The Bicycle Man" is responsible for attacking at least 21 people since last summer.

All of his reported victims are said to have been women.

Police managed to arrest him following his most recent attack on September 17th.

The man was identified last Tuesday thanks to tips from the public and arrested later that night.

According to the arrest report, the man is 22-years-old with Somalian citizenship.

Investigators say the suspect couldn't speak Swedish and required a Somali interpreter.

Prosecutors say they have reason to believe that the migrant will continue to commit crimes.

The motive behind the attacks remains unclear.
