Police believe 6 home invasions over the last 7 years that have resulted in sexual assaults, are the cowardly acts of one man. The suspect sneaks into homes at night, wakes a young woman sleeping alone, threatens her, tells her he wants money, does steal things from her, but, his real intent is to rape the victim.
Janesville detectives are urging women who live alone, or with small children, to keep doors locked and window shades drawn in the evening.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30's, 5-9 to 6 feet tall, stocky, muscular build, light-colored or blond hair and blue eyes. He smokes cigarettes, and is familiar with the Beloit/Janesville area.
A "Stop the Rapes" tipline has been established. If you have any information you should call 755-3146.
