ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - A rape suspect is still on the loose, accused of attacking two women in each of the last two years.

St. Louis County Police say one woman was raped in a West County apartment in April of 2011.  In September 2012, another woman told police she was raped while walking near Parkway North High School.  The alleged attacks were just five miles apart.  Police say DNA evidence have them looking for the same suspect.

Both victims were Asian females.  But, Officer Randy Vaughn wants every woman to be careful this summer.

"Can he change? Absolutely,' Vaughn said.  'The first two victims have been Asian females.  I don`t know if he will continue to do that or if he will ever commit this crime again.  We`re just interested in getting this gentleman in cuffs and behind bars.'

Police say the suspect appears to be:
•    Hispanic
•    In his 40`s
•    With short, black hair
•    With short, facial hair
•    With a heavy build
•    About 5`6' - 5`8'

If you know anything about this case, you are being asked to call St. Louis County Police at (314) 889-2341 or Crimestoppers at (866) 371-8477 (TIPS).
