Suspect of Dallas-area rapist accused of attacking older members of sorority Delta Sigma Theta
*Police in the Dallas area are hunting a suspected serial rapist who is targeting alumnae members of Delta Sigma Theta, and each of the victims told investigators the assailant seemed to have personal knowledge about them.
Four black women in their mid-50s to early 60s, all members of Delta Sigma Theta, were raped in their Dallas-area homes over the last 11 months, apparently all by the same assailant, according to an alert sent out by the Plano, Texas, Police Department.
The most recent of the attacks occurred around 9:15 p.m. Friday in Corinth, in Denton County, police said. Two of the rapes occurred in Plano and other in Coppell, both of which are in Dallas County.
The suspect, who is seen in the above surveillance video released by the Plano police, is described as a black man, estimated to be in his late 30s to mid-40s, 5 feet seven inches to 6 feet tall and 250 to 300 pounds. He has a trimmed beard and short hair, and possibly a receding hairline, police said.
Each of the four attacks happened between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. According to the Dallas Morning News the alerts also advised that police have requested a full list of each chapter’s members.
“I am sure this is alarming and the area DFW Chapter presidents have received many phone calls in reference to these incidents,” the email said. “Our National President, National First Vice President and Regional Director are aggressively gathering information to distribute to the chapters.”
Anyone with information about the suspect shown in the surveillance video is asked to call the Plano Police Department Tip Line at 972-941-2148 or the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 877-373-8477.
