During the 1980s in South Yorkshire, a rapist was on the loose, attacking six women and stealing their stiletto shoes. Police were baffled and, with no obvious suspects, their investigation stalled. Then, the rapes stopped and the Rotheram shoe rapist became a cold case.

Tonight at 9.25pm on TV ONE Real Crime: The Hunt For The Shoe Rapist, discovers that almost 20 years later, advances in DNA technology led to the re-examination of the evidence from the attacks and the investigation was re-opened. Hunt For The Shoe Rapist tells the story of how, through dogged, tireless police work and cutting edge science, Detective Sue Hickman of the South Yorkshire Police finally tracked down the man responsible.
