Police Arrest Man Possibly Connected To Palm Bay Sex Crimes
POSTED: 12:22 pm EDT October 6, 2006
UPDATED: 4:58 pm EDT October 6, 2006
PALM BAY, Fla. -- Palm Bay police were trying to figure out, Friday, if they've captured the man who's been breaking into homes, raping at least one woman. They were questioning a man who was arrested on other charges.
Reggie Little was booked at the Brevard County jail Friday on two charges. While there, investigators were checking his DNA against the DNA found at one of the rape scenes to see if there's a match.
When police brought Little in to the police station, they were anxious to get a good look at him to see whether he had the same haircut seen in surveillance video from one crime scene, or if he matched a composite sketch.
They want to know if he is the man who has been breaking into homes in Palm Bay and, in at least one case, raped a woman.
"The individual fit the general description of our suspect," said Spokesperson Yvonne Martinez, Palm Bay Police.
Thursday, an officer on patrol spotted Little driving his maroon van slowly, suspiciously through the same area where some of the break-ins and an attempted rape occurred. They became more suspicious when his license plate didn't match the van.
But when police tried to stop him, he took off.
Police found the empty van a short while later. Then they found Little with a stolen car early Friday morning and arrested him.
"Because of the similarities in the physical description and that fact that he was driving suspiciously in that area, we have to look into it," Martinez said.
Police said Little he couldn't explain why he was driving through the neighborhood early in the morning and, when they asked why he fled, all he would say was he was afraid
