Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan held a news conference Monday afternoon in hopes of calming nervous residents. Chief Jordan said, "I will tell you this. The perpetrator will be brought to justice."
The head of TPD said it’s going to take some time to catch the suspect, but tips from the people of Tulsa will lead them "closer and closer" to an arrest.
The eighth sexual assault victim, in just a matter of weeks, came forward Sunday morning. Police say the woman in her 60's was alone when the man broke in and assaulted her.
Most of the assaults have occurred at night. Plus, investigators say he dresses in dark clothing, making it hard for the victims to get a good look at his face.
Some of the victims have told police the suspect was white. Others said he was black. One of the victims last week was able to see her attacker enough to give police a description for a sketch.
Chief Jordan said, "We have eight victims. We have some very diverse descriptions. I will just tell everybody. I know we feed on visual stimuli like a composite. That is the perception of one witness."
Detectives say they have looked into 100 tips so far. A task force was assembled to track the suspect.
Jordan said he's thankful that so many victims have come forward. Police are urging people who see ANY suspicious behavior to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
