With the Arlington/Fort Worth rape suspect also connected to assaults in Longview, Tyler police are checking to see if 31-year old Albert Arrendondo is connected to a string of sexual assaults in South Tyler.
The most recent Tyler assaults happened in April, and there are still no suspects, or arrests in those cases. Local police say they will check to see if Arredondo's DNA matches samples taken from any of the crime scenes.
For now though, police say Arredondo does not match descriptions given by two women attacked in April. Both woman described their attackers as black males, and Arredondo is Hispanic.
