DNA Links Rapist in 5 Palm Beach Attacks

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say they believe the same man is responsible for five rapes in Palm Beach County since 2009.

The most recent attack was on a 22-year-old woman in Lake Worth on Sept. 23.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says DNA evidence links the rape to four previous ones — in Jupiter, Palm Springs and two others in Lake Worth.

The Palm Beach Post reports (http://bit.ly/nXQRpb ) a $10,000 reward is being offered to anyone who can provide information leading to an arrest.
