Lassana Coulibaly, also known as The Sock Rapist, is a French serial rapist, active between 2002 and 2005 in the areas of Paris, Aulnay-sous-Bois, Clermont-Ferrand, Vichy and Montpellier. Lassana Coulibaly, a delinquent from Aubervilliers, kidnapped and raped (or sexually assaulted) twelve women between the ages of 19 and 57, entering their homes mainly through an open window, sometimes through a roof, balcony or scaffolding. He got his nickname from the fact that he usually gagged his victims with a sock, also using cables and cord extensions found on site. The absence of fingerprints in the first cases suggested to the investigators that he always wore gloves when he attacked the women; it would eventually turn out that he used a pair of socks to cover his hands.

Roland Cazaux (born September 1958), known as The Cat, is a French serial rapist. Before his crimes, he was simply known as a honest, working father with two boys, employed as a foreman of a construction company. From 1987 to 2002, Cazaux raped at least 36 victims in Basque Country (chiefly in Arcachon and Landes). He was not considered a suspect by authorities, despite a 1982 conviction for sexual assault, for which he served a year in prison, and another for indecent assault, for which he served three months. In addition, Roland underwent medical treatment for a whole year, but psychiatric experts considered he was unlikely to reoffend. He would select potential victims during business trips. The rapist was given the nicknames “The Cat” and “The Spider-Man” because of his discretion, attacking always at night, entering through windows and avoiding detection. LINK
