Police believe the same person is responsible for six rape cases reported in West Des Moines and Waukee. Authorities in the two Des Moines metro communities say a serial rapist has broken into six homes in the past five months.
Five of the cases occurred in West Des Moines and it’s believed the same man who committed those crimes recently raped a teenage girl in Waukee. All of the attacks have occurred between 1 and 4 in the morning.
The suspect is described as a black male, around six-feet tall with an average to muscular build. In each case, he has entered the home through a front door, patio door or a glass window.
