Kansas police seek help catching rapist who attacks college students
(CNN)Police in Kansas are asking for the public's help in catching a rapist who has assaulted female students from the state's two biggest universities since 2000.
Twelve rapes and one attempted rape occurred between 2000 and 2008 inside residences off the campuses of Kansas State University in Manhattan and the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Brad Schoen, director of the Riley County Police Department, said Thursday at a news conference.
Police put out a warning about a suspect in the series of rapes in 2009, but no arrests were made. There were no other reports of cases fitting the profile of the assailant until July 2015, when a man entered a KSU student's residence in Manhattan intending to sexually assault her, Schoen said.
