WASHINGTON, D.C. (6/11/12) – The Cleveland Division of the FBI and the Cleveland Police Department are asking the public to help identify an unknown male suspect wanted in connection with multiple rapes and a homicide in Cleveland, Ohio.
The first attack took place on May 3, 1996. The female victim was abducted, raped, shot, and left for dead. The victim survived her wounds.
Then, on February 2, 1997, the body of a female was discovered under a parked truck in a secluded truck lot. The victim had sustained severe head trauma.
On June 18, 1998, another attack occurred as the victim walked home from a friend’s house.
Thirteen years later, on December 8, 2010, a female victim was approached at a bus stop by the same unknown suspect, who asked for the time. The unknown suspect then raped the female at gunpoint.
Age: Late 30s to early 40s (approximate current age)
Height: 5'7" to 5'8"
Weight: Approximately 140 to 150 pounds
Scars and Marks: The unknown suspect has a large (approximately 2.5 inches) raised scar on his cheek.
The unknown suspect is known to use PCP. During the first attack, the unknown suspect was driving a Buick Regal or Chevy Monte Carlo that had temporary tags with big blue letters in the rear window. The unknown suspect was listening to Reggae music. The victim of the fourth attack described the unknown suspect as having a full beard and mustache, with a gray patch of hair on his chin.
