PBSO Looking for a Couple of Rapists, Including One Violent Serial Rapist
If you know a guy who may or may not have raped four women and looks a lot like the dude in the picture to the right, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office would like to know about that.
Detectives from PBSO are looking for the "very violent sexual offender" they believe has raped four women between 2009 and 2010 and have released their new composite sketch of the creep, which is reportedly much different from the last one they released.
A couple of the rapes have been linked by DNA, but the cops still need to figure out who that DNA belongs to.
Here's a rundown of the four attacks:
Near Old Dixie Highway in Jupiter, a 21-year-old woman was raped, beaten, battered, and bitten while on a walk through her neighborhood at night, police say.
- April 9, 2009
A 26-year-old woman was attacked and raped inside her Palm Springs home, according to the cops.
- July 24, 2009
A 53-year-old woman was sitting outside her Lake Worth house at night when she was raped, beaten, and bitten, police say.
- August 8, 2009
A 58-year-old Lake Worth woman was walking to work early that morning when she was "violently battered" and raped, cops say.
- January 16, 2010
The cops are also looking for another rapist, this one out of West Palm Beach.
Police are looking for the man seen on the video here as their potential rapist in an attack on April 10.
A woman was walking alone around 6:30 a.m. that day when she was "severely beaten"
behind the Plush Pony on the 2000 block of S. Military Trail in West Palm Beach.
If you know any of the aforementioned rapists, the cops would like you to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
