Police Search For Serial Rapist In DC

Two women have been raped this week in Northwest DC and police believe it was by the same man. Police have released two video surveillance images of the suspect in the separate cases.

The first victim was attacked around 1 am on Tuesday in a row house in the 1600 block of Irving Street in Northwest. Detectives found evidence that he removed an air conditioning unit to gain entry into the home.

The second victim was attacked around 6 a.m. on Thursday also in the 1600 block of Irving Street in Northwest. He reportedly gained entry through an unlocked window in the basement of the home. Police have released surveillance images of the suspect riding away from the second crime scene on a bicycle that police say he stole from the home of the first victim. Both women were confronted by the suspect in their bedrooms where he sexually assaulted them and then robbed them.

Police are urging parents to secure there home and to report anything suspicious. There is a $1,000 reward for information in this case that leads to an arrest and conviction.
