Hudson Serial Rapist Now Up to Four Victims

HUDSON, Fla. (AP) _ A suspected serial rapist faces additional charges after a fourth victim has accused him of taking her to the woods and raping her at gunpoint.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office says 38-year-old Tommy Garcia has been in jail since Thursday. Authorities say the rapes happened earlier this month and in December.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/wJJLSc ) reports one victim got a partial license plate number which helped detectives track Garcia.

Victims then picked him out of a lineup.

Garcia is charged with four counts of sexual battery with a deadly weapon and two counts of kidnapping. He is in the Pasco County Jail, where bond has been set at $1.6 million.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Garcia.
