Austin Serial Rape Suspect Picture Released

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT

The Austin Police Department released a picture of an alleged serial rapist suspected in a series of sexual assaults.

Edgar Casas, 25, is charged with attacked a woman on Gessner Drive, near I-35 and Hwy 183 earlier in April and the assault of a 13-year-old girl in an apartment complex laundry room in November.

Police say the attacks started in August 2012 in North Central Austin. They say in most situations, the suspect approaches the victims in the parking lots or laundry rooms of apartment complexes. In many instances the victims have had children with them -- but this has not deterred the suspect.

--May now be clean shaven
--May be wearing an erring

Anyone with information about Casas or the crimes may call the Sex Crimes Tip Line at 512-974-5095 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-8477.
