Potential lead as the search for a serial rapist continues

By and on October 14th, 2011

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office has obtained a surveillance photo identifying the vehicle driven by a man suspected of multiple recent sexual assaults. The vehicle is a 1991 through 1995 Plymouth Voyager, Dodge Caravan, or Chrysler Town and Country.

Ocala Police and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office are searching for the man they believe is responsible for at least three sexual assaults in Marion County since July, and possibly one in Gainesville from July 5.  Ocala Police Department Sergeant Chas Maier says there are a number of similarities among the cases, which leads investigators to believe they are connected.

Maier says the most recent attack took place Wednesday on the 1100 block of NW 38th Avenue.
