One Man Believed to Have Committed All Three Lake Highlands Rapes. Police Now Have a Sketch.
Still no answer for who was responsible for three rapes over the past month, but the investigation has made progress, DPD Major Jeff Cotner told the press this afternoon. "We don't have three predators, we have one."
Police have drafted two different sketches of the man, one as described by the woman attacked on February 22, the other from March 15. The woman in the third rape on March 19 couldn't offer a detailed description, but did manage to claw her attacker.
"He will have multiple scratches on his face, his cheeks and on his neck," Cotner said. "He will also have bite marks on his hands, fingers, and, in particular, he should have a deep laceration on at least one finger."
Police have already fielded more than 100 tips, but they're looking for more. Anyone with information should call DPD at 214-670-4415 or, if they wish to remain anonymous and be eligible for the $25,000 reward, CrimeStoppers at 877-373-8477.
