The Tucson Police Department is asking for help identifying a suspect in a series of sexual assaults that happened in the area of 22nd Street and Craycroft Road.
Since January, five women have reported being attacked while walking alone outdoors in the area. The attacks occurred between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., and in four of the five attacks the suspect was armed with a weapon, a police spokesman said.
"It is believed that the assaults are possibly related," Sgt. Chris Widmer said in a news release.
All the victims have described the attacker as a light-skinned Hispanic or white man with a thin build, aged 25-30.
The man is about 5' 4"-5'6" tall, weighs 110-40 pounds, and has short brown hair and a light mustache, Widmer said. The man has either acne or pock marks on his face, according to the release.
Anyone who has any information is asked to contact 911 or 88-CRIME.
TPD would like to remind the community to stay safe by taking the following actions, Widmer said:
