Sheriff’s deputies are trying to find the man suspected of a string of assaults against women in rural areas near McFarland and Delano.

Commander Larry McCurtain says there are many links between the three attacks even if there is no physical evidence such as where they occurred and the type of woman he targeted. All three victims were alone when they were assaulted.

McFarland Police Chief Scot Kimble believes the suspect may be living in or near the city.

The suspect is described as a man between 20 and 30-years-old, 5’5″-8″ tall, and weighing between 150-200lbs.
