April 11, 2006

Albany -- Dougherty County Police now say they're not sure if there is a serial rapist kidnapping women from south Albany.

Last night, DCP Sgt. J. C. Phillips told us seven women had been raped, possibly by the same man.

Today, Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek says he only knows of three reported cases in 2005 and 2006.  He is checking with other jurisdictions for similar cases.  The most recent attack was reported April 7th. In those three cases, the victims were forced into a vehicle by gun or knifepoint, then taken to Pecan Grove Drive and raped.

"We're not using the terminology 'serial rapist,'" said Dougherty Co. Police Chief Don Cheek. "We're looking at three rape cases that do have some general similarities to them, but there are some areas that are not necessarily overlapping or corresponding."

The suspect drove a light green PT Cruiser In the most recent case.

In all of the cases,the suspect is a black man, around 6-2, 240 pounds, in his 20's or 30's, with average complexion. If you see a man with a similar description driving that car, call Dougherty County Police.
