BATON ROUGE- The US Marshals nabbed a man here who is suspected of raping four women in Texas.

Van Draylan Dixson, 38, was arrested about 2 p.m. Tuesday at a motel on Florida Boulevard after Marshals learned he was in the area and had arrived on a bus.

Police in Dallas said Dixson, a neighborhood watch volunteer, forced victims at gunpoint into secluded areas and sexually assaulted them.

Investigators believe Dixson could be connected to as many as nine attacks.
