TX - Police seek serial rapist in South Dallas *Arrest* Van Dralan Dixson
Investigators say there have been seven aggravated sexual assaults on six different days in the city's southeast patrol division since June 22. The most resent offenses have happened between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. in the 75210 and 75215 zip codes
Victims described their assailant as a black man in his mid-20s to 30 years old; 180-200 lbs; at times wearing a T-shirt and basketball shorts. He is said to cover his face with a mask or bandana. He wears oval/round prescription glasses with a gold metal rim.
Police said the suspect often approaches his victim at gunpoint, demanding money. He then forces the victim to a vacant lot or wooded area and demands to have sex.
The suspect has been associated with two different vehicles:
gray Honda Civic four-door sedan
gray older model Volvo with tinted windows
"The public should take special precautions to not walk alone in this area during early morning hours," a police statement urged. "This suspect has relied upon darkness in making his approaches on the victims and should be considered armed and dangerous."
Dallas police are increasing patrols in areas the suspect has targeted.

From last month:
But for a bolt of lightning, Van Dralan Dixson might have been labeled a rapist in 1992. The strike killed Dixson’s accuser, leaving prosecutors without a victim. Dixson was off the hook.
It took 23 years, several more victims and an interstate manhunt, but Dixson, 40, finally received the epithet Friday when he pleaded guilty to a series of 2013 sexual assaults that terrorized South Dallas. For taking the plea deal, he’ll spend his life in prison. He’ll serve 30 years before he is eligible for parole...
Dixson copped to four counts of aggravated sexual assault — police say he was responsible for as many as nine attacks – and two counts of aggravated robbery.
