Manhunt II The Night Stalker: ITV Announces Sequel To Manhunt Based On Serial Rapist Delroy Grant
ITV is officially bringing us a sequel to Manhunt, which is set to star Martin Clunes.
And the series will follow the real life story of his pursuit of notorious serial rapist, Delroy Grant, who terrorised thousands of poor, vulnerable old people in south east London for 17 years in a reign of terror.
As well as Milly Dowler murderer Levi Bellfield - who was the centre of the last Manhunt series - Brockley resident Grant was one of DCI Sutton's biggest and most world renowned cases.
Grant is a Jamaican convicted rapist known as the Night Stalker, who is famed for having burgled, raped and sexually assaulted a whole string of mostly old people between October 1992 and May 2009, going undetected for almost two decades, and targeting hundreds of victims.
He was eventually caught after police launched the dedicated Operation Minstead team to track him down, which was run out of Lewisham police station.
