A suspected sex attacker tracked down on Facebook will have to face a retrial after a jury was discharged today.

The jurors had failed to agree verdicts on charges of attempted rape, sexual assault and assault after more than 11 hours.

Alpha Gray, 30, of Holloway, north London, will face a retrial at the Old Bailey early in the new year.

He was arrested after a woman who was attacked in Tufnell Park, north

London, in May said she had traced Gray through the social networking site.

He denied the charges and said he had left the area in a cab before the attack.
