This stopping and swabbing is actually a good way to catch any rapist no matter colour of skin if the victim is unable to give an acurate descrpition of the assailant what if he was wearing a mask then how else are the authorities going to catch the person? O.K stopping every person and swabbing them is a stupid idea it will take forever
At a news conference Monday, Chief Timothy J. Longo announced a new composite sketch based on the recollection of the rapist’s most recent known victim, a former UVa student attacked in an apartment on Jefferson Park Avenue in April.
Longo said she got a “really good look at him” — a potential windfall in a case dominated by widely varying descriptions. He has been linked forensically to six attacks since February 1997.
The chief suggested the rapist may be “enjoying the chase,” and said he and the rest of his department are taking the rapist’s attacks personally. He added that the rapist should feel “pressured” that a composite with an accuracy rating of 7 on a scale of 10 is in circulation.
The Willoughby victim said the rapist conversed with her, asking about her children and whether her family had remodeled the floors.
Another thing the victim in the Willoughby attack noticed about the rapist is that he seemed to be “talking himself through” the ordeal. “Now we’re going to do this. Now we’re going to do that,” she said, imitating his manner of speech.

I would just like to add a correction that this is in Charlottesville, Virginia, not North Carolina. I live somewhat close to Charlottesville and the cities female population is in fear, especially to college students. I think that what ever action is neccesary to catch him need to be taken. -Muzz

As much as I disagree with racial profiling, I will continue to support the Charlottesville Police Departments efforts to aprehend the serial rapist. This has gone on for too long and I agree that it's never a problem when brunettes or 300lb persons are questioned in connection with a crime, so why throw a fight for the black suspects. -Muzz
