Serial Rapist

Dallas police

UPDATE AT 4 p.m.: The neighborhood watch volunteer suspected of raping four women in southern Dallas has been arrested in Louisiana.

Van Dralan Dixson, 38, was arrested in a motel near downtown Baton Rouge around 2 this afternoon, Dallas police announced at a press conference.

Police believe a single attacker sexually assaulted as many as nine women since June in the Fair Park area.

Police say the attacker forced victims at gunpoint into secluded areas and sexually assaulted them.

Dallas Police say the hunt for a serial rapist in the neighborhood south of Fair Park is still “open and active” even with the overnight arrest of a person of interest.  Detectives urge people to keep calling the tip line.
