BATON ROUGE - BRPD released a sketch Thursday of the rapist authorities believe committed two assaults in the LSU area over the past two weeks.
The suspect is described as an Hispanic male in his 20's, 5'5"-5'8", thin to medium build, wavy hair, driving an older model, maroon or red, four-door compact car.
Authorities say the man depicted in the sketch raped a woman Tuesday at an apartment on Stanford Avenue. They believe he could be the same person who attacked a woman last Tuesday off of Lee Drive.
Both victims say the man approached them between the hours of 2 and 4 a.m. and asked to use their phone while they were outside the door of their home.
Anyone with any information on the identity of the suspect or suspects is urged to contact the BRPD Sex Crimes Division at 389-3853.
