Rapist used dating app to lure victims across the country, police say

She met him on a dating site, where Seth Mull’s profile said he was “serious about finding the perfect match.” She found him attractive: Mull was fit, with huge biceps and ripped abs. He was kind, too, quickly gaining her trust.

The couple met at a Pennsylvania hotel, where they drank and listened to music. She said she’d made it clear to him ahead of time: No sex.

Mull had other ideas, according to court documents, taking her hostage in his hotel room, raping her repeatedly and burning her with a lighter. “You look into his eyes,” the 24-year-old New Jersey woman told The Associated Press, “and you see the devil.”

Victim says police not doing enough to find convicted rapist who vanished before sentencing

After the man convicted of raping her vanished, the victim says police in Saskatoon have done little to find him despite leads suggesting he is still in Canada.

“I’m not waiting for a phone call I’m never going to get,” said the woman CBC News is calling Sarah, to protect her identity.

Sarah was raped for hours at the University of Saskatchewan’s McEown Park dormitory in the early hours of New Year’s Day 2012. She’s not sure exactly how many attackers there were but DNA testing detected the presence of semen from two men.

‘I just collapsed, and I was underneath the table, like, shaking and bawling.’

Child Rapist And Killer Arrested After Police See Through His ‘New Look’

Mumbai:  Drastically altering his looks while on the run could not save a 23-year-old from Chennai from the police, who instantly recognised him in Mumbai on Friday and arrested him. S Daswant is accused of killing his mother, and raping and murdering a 7-year-old girl. Daswant had fled from Chennai police custody and reached Mumbai on Wednesday.

He quickly got a haircut and a French beard to evade detection by the cops. “Daswant looked completely different when he was spotted at Kala Ghoda. But, a team of police officers who were with an officer from the Tamil Nadu police immediately identified him.

Senior Derbyshire police officer says community is key to catching Ilkeston rapist

A senior Derbyshire police officer says the community holds the key to catching a vile rapist who attacked a woman in Ilkeston.

It has been a week since the horrific attack on the woman who was grabbed as she was walking along Queens Avenue last Sunday in the early hours of the morning and raped.

The attacker was described as white, 5ft 7-9 inches tall, aged between 35 and 45, and slim. He was wearing a hooded grey track suit.

Superintendent Tracy Harrison, who is in charge of policing for Erewash, said: “After 30 years of policing I still find it very hard to understand how anybody can commit such a horrendous crime. Stranger rapes, where there is no connection between the victim and the attacker, are extremely rare.

“It is our job to find the attacker.
