FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina (WTVD) — The Fayetteville Police Department is looking for a serial rapist tied to 11 rapes.

The incidents happened between June 24, 2009 and July 17, 2010, in Fayetteville, Hope Mills, and Cumberland County – usually happening during the hours of 9 p.m. and 7:15 a.m., according to authorities.

“He was a predator,” said Fayetteville Police Lt. John Somerindyke. “He picked his prey very carefully. He did some prior recon obviously, you know as far as peeping into windows, seeing these ladies’ routines. He was stalking them, he was a predator, he knew the routines, then he struck middle of the night early morning when nobody was up, and raped each of these women.”

Police said his hair was covered most of the time during the incidents, so he could possibly have shoulder length or slightly longer dreadlocks.
