    I thought we should have the suspect sketch. Almost sounds like two different men by the two descriptions.

    Tulsa, Oklahoma -

    ~Snip~

    Officer Leland Ashley, with TPD, said, "This subject made the same comments with the same phrases as the two prior attacks, which leads us to believe it's the same one."

    The fourth attack happened Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m. and police said it was the worst one so far.

    They said the woman's electricity went out so she stepped outside to see if her neighbor's had electricity and they did, so she went back inside and the man had entered her home.

    They said he raped her and made the same lewd comments.

    Days later on Sunday, June 8, a 68-year-old woman was attacked in her home near 42nd and Detroit around 6 a.m.

    Police say the suspect forced his way into the woman's home through a back door, pushed her down and sexually assaulted her, again while making lewd comments.

    The suspect fled the woman's home with cash from her kitchen cabinet.

    The victim told police the suspect had a dark complexion but she wasn't sure of his race. He was described as 5 feet 8 and 170 pounds, wearing a gray hoodie, dark jeans and brown work gloves. The victim said the suspect had some facial hair on his chin and had a voice that appeared to be that of a man in his 20s.

    Around 6 a.m. Friday, June 6, a 29-year-old woman was walking in the parking lot of Coppermill Apartments on 71st Street between Yale and Sheridan when a man knocked her down and grabbed her purse and laptop computer.

    While struggling with the victim, police say the suspect pulled the woman's pants down and made lewd comments but he did not sexually assault her. The man, who the victim describes as black with a dark complexion, fled with her purse.

    Police say the suspect is about 5 feet 6 and 145 pounds with a tattoo on his right forearm. He was wearing a red shirt and black Dickies pants.

    Differing suspect descriptions prove difficult for police in serial assault case

    Posted: 9:00 p.m. Sunday, June 29, 2014

    TULSA, Okla. —

    Tulsa police only sent out one release today and would not go on camera, but they said finding a serial assault suspect attacking Tulsa women is like finding a needle in a haystack.

    Sunday’s attack was the eighth in less than a month and the second in 48 hours. It happened less than 3 miles away from Friday’s attack.

    ~Snip~

    Police aren’t releasing details about how the predator broke in during the last two attacks, but we know in earlier cases that he forced his way through doors or windows.

    The main reason I wanted to bring these cases here is to get a handle on all of the different things going on and get an idea of who they are supposed to be looking for as the crimes appear to be escalating.

    I did note a pattern has emerged with the time between attacks. He hits 2 days straight then next set of attacks are a day apart. He returns to the 2 days straight and again to a day apart. This could indicate he has a job or other situation where he is off only 2 nights a week and sometimes together and other times not. He is also hitting at night/early morning between 9:30pm and 7:15am. The time between the series of 2 attacks varies.

    Dates and locations of attacks:

    June 29, 2014 - 11th and Memorial
    June 27, 2014 - 4th And Pittsburg
    June 20, 2014 – 45th Place and Peoria
    June 19, 2014 – 11th and Yale
    June 11, 2014 – 15th and Denver
    June 9, 2014 – 42nd and Detroit
    June 6, 2014 - 71st and Yale
    June 5, 2014 - 45th Place and Peoria

    Some people have mentioned the attacks appear to be happening along the metro bus route, but I have not investigated it yet. It was mentioned in a recent news story only 2% of transit riders use the night service which they want to cut out completely in July (http://www.newson6.com/story/25196960/changes-to-tulsa-transit-may-leave-nighttime-riders-stranded). I don't see it as a great option for his mode of transportation only due to the small number of people riding and him possibly standing out to the drivers.

    Here is the time schedule of night service:

    Page 96
    Tulsa Transit Route Guide
    Nightline is a flexible Fixed Route service that travels on regular
    routes with regular schedules. Nightline is available Monday
    through Friday starting at 8:00 p.m. and some routes will run as
    late as 12:00 a.m. or later. We also offer Nightline service on
    Saturday. These routes will start at 7:30 p.m. and some routes will
    run as late as 12:00 a.m.
