Police issue sketch of serial rapist



The Cincinnati Enquirer

ROSELAWN - A woman raped at knifepoint just before Christmas was the first in a series of victims able to describe her attacker, giving Cincinnati police a sketch of a man they now have linked to six rapes.

In 2002, they used DNA to link rapes that happened in 1998 and 2000. They've since linked four more, dating back to 1995.

Investigators talked about the attacks at neighborhood meetings in the two communities where the attacks happened - Pleasant Ridge and Roselawn.

Friday, they released a sketch of the suspect.

He's described as 30 to 40 years old, 5-10 to 6 feet tall and 160 to 185 poundsPolice ask anyone who recognizes the man to call Crime Stoppers, 352-3040.
