This is really close to where I live, about 30 minutes from me.
I know others have posted about this, but it looks like ASU may have a serial attacker on their hands now.
Attempted sexual assault near ASU may be tied to earlier attack
The Arizona Republic

The attempted sexual assault of an Arizona State University student over the weekend may be linked to a Feb. 7 attack, police said Monday.
It is the third attack on a female ASU student in more than a month.
According to Tempe police, the 19-year-old victim woke about 3 a.m. Saturday to find a man on top of her. The victim pushed off her attacker and fled the apartment in the 1100 block of East Apache Boulevard. The man was gone by the time police arrived. There was no description of the attacker available, and the apartment showed no sign of forced entry.
A 20-year-old was sexually assaulted Feb. 24 at the Gateway at Tempe apartments near ASU. On Feb. 7, a 19-year-old fought off an attacker who crawled in her open second-floor window in the same complex. The most recent attack was less than 2 miles from the site of the February attacks.
Wow, this one really actually fits the description of the perp, except for the slender build.
He is described as white, 25 to 40, 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, with a slim build.
Sorry if this has already been posted, I googled NorCal Serial rapist after seeing him on another website. He's raped 9 women in Northern California area.

She told police a light-skinned, biracial man with reddish-brown hair and blue eyes took her to an unknown location in a dark-colored, extended cab pickup truck.
Afterwards, the suspect dropped her off at the same place where he abducted her, police said.
This perp raped the same woman twice in two months. Description is:
The suspect is described as a white male 5 foot 10 inches to 5 foot 11 inches tall. He is in his late 20s to early 30s and was wearing a black or blue hoodie, blue jeans and white sneakers.
Similar cases, very far away, good way to hide if a perp...Wonder if they have contacted Reno? Also wonder if rape was involved or panty stealing? They aren't saying...maybe someone should contact the press back there, and get them to contact Reno, to check the DNA for a match?
Thanks for posting that INH. I was wondering if that was related also. It does seem unlikely due to the distance. But IMO it also seems unlikely to me that the perp has not struck again by now. So I do think it's worth checking into.
Thanks...I think that Reno PD and the FBI should know about websleuths site, and specifically this particular thread. With so many people who care about this case, perhaps we will list something in our diligence that the police will have more info on than we do, and be able to match something.
Some of description fits, perhaps the perp has grown his hair out? This is in California, on the I80 corridor.
I believe I have posted this one before, but looking at it again today, I feel very strongly that this could be our perp. I think he may have done this crime maybe after he did not have success assaulting the UNR victim in the garage on Nov. 13.
It does not give a time. The location is 3 miles from the general college area. I am summarizing it here, but click on the link and go to the second one down to read the full thing.
Robbery, Kidnapping Melenitas parking lot
On November 13, 2007 officers responded to the Town and Country Shopping Mall on a report of a strong-armed robbery of a female victim. The suspect approached the victim and punched her in the stomach, forcing her to open her vehicle. The suspect ordered the victim to drive him to the opposite end of the parking lot where he demanded money. The victim attempted to use her cell phone to call police, but the suspect took the phone and disabled it. The suspect fled on foot heading eastbound on Vassar St. The suspect is described as a white male adult, approximately 35 to 37 years old, 510 to 6 tall, 160 pounds, clean-shaven, wearing a grey baseball cap, black sweatshirt, and blue jeans. The suspect matched the description of a local patron who frequents the area.
This is the UNR paper's description of the perp in the Nov. 13 attack:
The suspect is described as a white male, between 25 and 35 years old, about 5 feet and 9 inches tall. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie.
Other posters have brought up several assaults/attempted assaults at Arizona State U. in the last few months. The latest attempt produced no suspect description or sketch.
However, I found on the college's site this crime alert from Feb. 27, which I thought was interesting. It won't let me copy and paste, so check the link, but the suspect desciption is a white male of average build between the ages of 30 and 40 who drives a dark gray pickup truck:

There were a string of car break-ins in parking garages between October and November of 2007 at UNR. Could the perp have been warming up?
I remember seeing this, but at the time didn't really look for a connection. But this girl's assault and murder is still unsolved and she physically resembles Brianna.
Arizona police hunting for a serial predator
This has probably already been discussed but I saw this and thought of Brianna.
That's a great find Jesikah. I think I read that they have a POI in this, but there has also been a string of attacks or attempted attacks at the U of Arizona. Looks like Arizona and Nevada both have several serial attackers.
This sounds like Briannas and the other girls rapist... when I look at the drawing of the suspect and the suspect in Briannas.. they can look alike, take a look. It just happened in Vegas at midnight.
