PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police have arrested a man suspected in four rapes last month in Kensington.
Police have identified the man as 31-year-old Marcos Camacho. The Philadelphia district attorney’s office has charged Camacho with rape and related crimes for sexual assaults on four women along the Kensington Avenue corridor during November. The attacks happened between midnight and 7:30am (see related story).
Camacho is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. A retainer from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement has also been issued in the case.
The police department’s Special Victims Unit announced yesterday that they were looking for the suspect. Then came word that the suspect may have been picked up Tuesday night on a drunk driving charge.
Camacho was driving the same white Volkswagen Jetta that was allegedly used during the assaults (see related story).
