Montgomery County Police are seeking this man, who was caught on a drugstore surveillance video after allegedly robbing and assaulting two women in Bethesda.

Montgomery County Police are hunting for an alleged rapist and robber who they say has been on a crime spree this week.

There have been two home-invasion type attacks in two days, and Montgomery police believe the same man is responsible for both. The latest home invasion happened Wednesday morning in Bethesda, when the suspect tied up a mother and child and sexually assaulted a housekeeper. He fled by stealing the rape victim's car. 

Detectives say the same man attacked another woman in her Wheaton garage, stole her car and purse and credit card. 

Police have posted a picture of the suspect when he was caught on camera at a drugstore in L'Enfant Plaza using one of two stolen debit cards. Police say he tried using another debit card in Oxon Hill, Md.
