GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro police are investigating a series of multiple violent sexual assaults, hoping to get more information to identify the suspect behind the attacks.
Investigators said the sexual assaults occurred on the southeast side of the city - either in the E. Market Street corridor or MLK Drive corridor.
Police said the three latest attacks occurred during the early morning hours of Aug. 11 to Aug. 13, and involved three different victims. In these cases, investigators said the victims willfully entered the suspect’s car before they were violently assaulted both physically and sexually.
Officers believe the August incidents are similar to two attacks that occurred after 2 a.m. on both June 13 and June 24.
Police describe the suspect as a man in his mid-20s to early 30, driving a beige sedan.
Captain Stephanie Mardis, Commanding Officer for the Criminal Investigations Division said two squads of investigators are assigned to the cases - and that they're going back through older reporters to see if there are any more connections.
"We are definitely trying to follow all the leads that we have with the information that we’ve gotten from the victims, and also going back to older cases just to see if there are any similarities in those cases," she said.
Captain Mardis said her detectives are re-interviewing the victims, who she says, do not appear to know one another or know the suspect.
"Naturally it is hard to recall very specific details shortly after a traumatic incident, so the information that we received so far is the information we have put out to the public but definitely, if we receive additional information that is more specific we will, without haste, release that information to the public as well."
If you have any information relating to the incidents, contact Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000.
