Police want answers in the case of a serial rapist who has sexually assaulted at least two women in Maryland's Montgomery County. He raped one of those women again on Wednesday. Police there are looking for tips that could bring them closer to finding a suspect.

Montgomery County Police Captain Paul Starks says patrol officers and investigators are visiting some Germantown residents to warn them of a man they believe is responsible for three rapes in the area.

"But also to garner information try to collect data from each one of those folks that officers spoke with," Starks says. "That data has been collected, we're sifting through it. Hopefully they'll be a tip something that will give us more information and get us closer to a resolution."

Police have a sketch of the suspect they believe raped a 68-year-old woman in her apartment at Beaconfield Terrance back in June and again on Wednesday. The same man is also believed to have sexually assaulted an 86-year-old woman at the Churchill Senior Living Center on Father Hurley Boulevard in August.
