Michigan — Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee says that his investigators are still intensely searching for what he called the “monster” that has been attacking women on the city’s northeast side.

“I think we all have the same goal in mind, and that’s to bring this predator to justice,” Godbee said. “We’re not going to stop until we catch this individual.”

He said there have been seven confirmed sexual assaults and one attempted assault since the first of the year.

Godbee said the victims have all been women between the ages of 17 and 33. The attacks have been linked to a possible serial rapist because all of incidents have similar elements that suggest their attacker’s modus operandi.

All of the attacks happened about five miles from downtown Detroit, and in most cases, the victims were waiting for a bus or walking to or from a bus stop. Chief Godbee also said the rapist forces them at gunpoint to secluded locations where they are robbed and sexually assaulted.
