Suspected Longview Serial Rapist Arrested

For women in the Longview area, the arrest of the man suspected in a long string of attacks is a huge relief. 31 year old Albert Arredondo was arrested by police in Weatherford Texas on Sunday, after he raped a woman at knife point. After being questioned by Longview police, he was linked to several sexual assaults here. Five charges have now been brought against him for burglary and sexual assault. Police believe Arredondo may be connected to as many as ten attacks over a two year period, with many occurring at North Longview apartment complexes. The news of his arrest has many women in the Longview area breathing easier. Arredondo's wife, Pat Akin, who lives in Longview, was stalked and physically abused by him for years. She was unaware that he had been involved in the sexual assaults. Arredondo remains in the Parker County jail on a 425-thousand dollars bond.
