Mollie Halpern: The FBI needs your help to identify an alleged murderer and serial rapist.

Christina Cottom: As far as we know, he still is armed and he won’t hesitate to use that weapon.

Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern, and this is Wanted by the FBI. An unidentified male was connected by DNA to four rapes which span a 14-year period. They all happened within a one-mile radius on the east side of Cleveland. Detective Christina Cottom of the Cleveland Police Department describes one of the cases…

Cotton: He shot her. When he got in his car, he drove so close by her that she felt the tires rub up against her arms. 

Halpern: One victim says the suspect smelled like PCP, is a black male, about 5’7” and weighs about 145 pounds. He would now be in his late 30s to early 40s with a raised scar…

Cottom: She describes a scar that extended from about mid-ear down and two-and-a-half inches in length toward his mouth.

Halpern: The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this suspect. Report tips at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
