Philadelphia Police Searching For Suspect Wanted For 3 Sexual Assaults

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Police Department is seeking assistance from the public to identify a suspect wanted for three sexual assaults between July 2010 and August 2011.

On Aug. 3, 2011 at 2:30 a.m., a 24-year-old female accepted a ride from an unknown male at Torresdale & Longshore Ave. The man was driving a newer model white pickup truck with ladder racks holding a ladder. He then drove the woman to 8100 Cresco Avenue, where he forced her into a wooded area and physically and sexually assaulted her.

On July 16, 2010 around the same time at night, a 26-year-old female reported a physical assault under similar circumstances at 8000 Cresco Ave, involving a similarly described suspect and vehicle.

And on May 15, 2012, a 27-year-old female came forward to report an assault that occurred back in Aug. 2010. She, too, had accepted a ride from Disson St & Torresdale Ave by a male operating a white pickup, and she was also assaulted near 8000 Cresco Ave. The man identified himself as “Rob” or “Bob” and may also operate a newer model dark blue minivan with an Eagles sticker in the rear window.

The suspect is described as a white male, 25-35 years of age, who is 5’9”-5’10” tall with a medium build, light brown close-cut hair, a close-cut mustache and goatee/beard. He also has piercings in his left eyebrow, right ear and tongue.

If you see this suspect, call 911 immediately. To submit a tip, 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
