Advisory

Serial Rapist At Large Advisory From Clayton County Police And Sheriff’s Office. SHERIFF VICTOR HILL

Clayton County Serial Rapist

March 4, 2019 – (Jonesboro, GA)

The Clayton County Police Department is actively investigating a rape at the 7000 block of Southlake Parkway. This offender has been linked through DNA evidence to seven rapes that occurred in Clayton County.

WHAT: ​​Clayton County Serial Rapist     

WHEN:​​March 2, 2019  

WHERE:​Clayton County, Georgia   

DETAILS:​​

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

On March 2, 2019, the Clayton County Police Department responded to a sexual assault. The perpetrator forced the victim inside the residence at knife point where he began to rape her but was interrupted by the boyfriend of the victim. The perpetrator fled the scene prior to police arrival. CCPD canvassed the area utilizing the CCPD K-9 unit but was unable to locate the perpetrator.

CCPD is working diligently by increasing uniform patrols as well as adding foot patrols in the areas of the attacks. CCPD is trying to bring awareness to the citizens in these communities by handing out safety tips and information concerning the offender. CCPD will start with management at nearby apartment complexes/duplexes then move to neighborhoods where the offender has struck. The areas of focus to start will be Hwy 138, Southlake Parkway and Battlecreek corridors.

 

CCPD will continue to work alongside with CCSO to increase public safety and awareness when senseless crimes occur in our communities. The safety of our citizens will remain to be our #1 priority. It is still highly encouraged that we all remain vigilant and take care of one another. 

The Clayton County Police Department is again asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the male in the sketches below. Please contact 911 if you see any suspicious activity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PREVIOUSLY RELEASED INFORMATION:

The most recent attempted rape case has NOT been confirmed to be linked to the five rape

cases mentioned in this press release.

 

As it pertains to the concerns of our citizens, the Clayton County Police Department and

Clayton County Sheriff’s Office are still actively seeking the suspect responsible for the rapes

as it is deemed an issue of public safety to have him still at large. Both agencies have

increased patrols throughout Clayton County and urge citizens to remain vigilant as they go

about their day.

 

CCPD and CCSO are urging citizens take the necessary steps to ensure that entry points to

their homes (windows and doors) are locked on a consistent basis. We also suggest that

citizens remain mindful of their surrounding especially as they are traveling alone and at odd

hours of night/day. All persons are encouraged to remain alert, but the only consistent

actions of the rapist is that he seems to target black females in multi-family dwelling locations

such as townhomes and apartment complexes.

 

DETAILS PREVIOUSLY RELEASED:

 

The Clayton County Police Department is actively working to locate and identify a male who

has been linked by DNA evidence to five rape cases that occurred between July 2015 and

May 2017. Detectives were working the cases separately until evidence returned from the

GBI confirming that the suspect in the cases were the same.

 

The modus of operandi (MO) in each case did not lead detectives to believe that the cases

were linked as the suspect did not utilize the same methodology to gain entry or intimidate

the victims.

 

The MOs used in each case are as follows:

• Gained entry through an unsecure/open window.

• Accosted victim outside as she was walking to her apartment.

• Forced his way into the apartment when the victim opened the door slightly after he

knocked on the door and asked for an unknown female.

• Brandished a knife. (1 case)

• Brandished a gun. (1 case)

 

In all of the cases, the suspect sought African-American female victims who lived in

communities comprised of multi-family dwellings (apartment complexes & townhomes).

One rape occurred at a single-family home.

 

The general location of the rapes are as follows:

• Chaselake Drive

• Roberts Drive

• Southlake Cove Court

• Brookview Drive

• Wynfield Drive

Two victims were able to provide enough information for a sketch to be drawn. (See

attached.)

We are asking that all citizens remain alert and ensure that their homes are secure (lock

doors and windows). Anyone who is able to provide information pertaining to the identity of

the person in the sketch is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477).
