Between 1998 and 2006, the D.C.-Area Hotel Rapist allegedly assaulted up to nine women—six of which are rapes forensically linked by his DNA—and the FBI and its law enforcement partners are offering a reward to help identify him.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identity, arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this series of violent sexual assaults. A substantial amount of additional reward money may be available from other law enforcement entities.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation along with the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, Prince George's County Police Department, Montgomery County Police Department, Greenbelt Police Department, and Arlington County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying an individual responsible for a series of sexual assaults in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
Between August 22, 1998, and February 6, 2006, a serial rapist violently assaulted six to nine women in the Washington D.C. area. Six of these attacks have been linked by DNA to a single offender, and suspicious activity was reported in five additional area hotels which may also be related. In the vast majority of these cases, hotel housekeepers were victimized. The unknown individual would enter hotel rooms unnoticed and rape housekeepers while they were cleaning. In several of the incidents, the suspect used a box cutter, a necktie, or a cord to threaten and harm his victims.
