Serial Attacker Ties Up,Terrorizes Victims for Hours

Police want to get this guy before he gets more violent

$20,000 is now on the head of the serial attacker who binds, robs, assaults and then terrorizes his victims.

Philly police say there's no question he'll attack again. He has struck at least three times, once near the UPenn campus and twice in Center City.

During the latest attack on two UPenn co-eds, he assaulted one of the women repeatedly for four hours.

He was armed with a knife and a gun. Police said the terror level was about as high as it can get; his victims weren't sure if he was going to put a knife through their back or a bullet through their head.

The Citizens Crime Commission has upped the reward to $20,000. Police asked the public to help catch this guy before he attacks again and before he gets more violent. In each attack, the suspect was also wearing a mask.
