Montgomery Co. Police Use Composite Created by DNA in Search for Rapist

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police are using a composite image created by DNA in an effort to identify a man who allegedly raped five women.

Police said in a statement Thursday that it is believed the six rapes — one woman was raped again six months after she was first attacked — were committed by the same man. Detectives say the women ranged in age from 37 to 95. The crimes occurred when the man broke into their homes between June 2010 and September 2012.

The department says it worked with a Virginia-based company in an effort to predict physical appearance from the rapist’s DNA evidence.

The composite is an image of a man, shown at age 25, with a medium-dark complexion, dark brown eyes and black hair. See the photo here.
