Sparks Police Fear Rapist-Robber Will Strike Again

SPARKS, NV - Sparks police believe there may be more robbery or rape victims out there who are reluctant to come forward.

The suspect has a history of following women around for a certain amount of time.

He knows their pattern and isn’t afraid to share that information with his victims, which may make them hesitant to come forward because they fear he may come back or hurt someone they know.

The most recent Sparks victim told KOLO 8 News Now, the robber told her he had been watching her for six months.

Police are asking that women, especially those who live alone to be vigilant in noticing their surroundings, and if anything is different once they get home, lights may be turned off, a door may be ajar, or jewelry box rifled through, get out of the house.

Sparks police say when looking at the surveillance video keep in mind certain things.

“If you look at the video, he walks across the video. How is he dressed, his mannerisms, maybe the way his hair is-- he kind of what looks like a short and stocky in nature. If that fits at all in any small way, and that piece in your gut its telling you, you know, I talked to that so-and so, call us and give us the information,” says Sergeant Greta Woyciehowsky, with Sparks Police

Sparks police are concerned he may be more emboldened and aggressive as time goes by, which means he may be more inclined to sexually assault his victims as opposed to just taking their money.

In all incidents he has been waiting in the house for his victims to return.

He has a heavy Hispanic accent, but victims say they clearly understood him.

If you have any information or you have been victimized by this man, contact Secret Witness at 322-4900.

There is a $2,000 Reward.
