The suspect targets young women walking on public
streets late at night, and apparently prefers prostitutes. The
suspect asks a woman if she wants a ride and if the victim refuses
to get into his vehicle, the suspect forces her into his car.
The suspect then drives the victim to a predetermined, remote
area where he sexually assaults her. If the victim refuses to
comply, the suspect becomes violent. In at least three incidents,
the suspect has driven a blue or dark four-door vehicle, possibly
a Chevrolet Impala. In one case, the suspect drove a red Ford
sport utility vehicle with a for sale sign in the window and in
another case the suspect used a four-door white Ford vehicle.
