Baltimore Police are asking for help in locating a man they said sexually assaulted or raped multiple women over the past two weeks.

The suspect—depicted in a sketch with this story—is described as a black male, between 5-foot-7 and 6-feet, with a "ticker or muscular build," who was wearing a black hooded sweat shirt and ski mask, according to a department release. He was armed with a handgun, police said.

Four similar incidents were reported in the past two weeks, occurring on Ramblewood Road, Stamford Road, Woodmont Avenue and Gunther Avenue. In each, the man approached female victims from outside, showed the handgun and forced the victim into their home, police said. The man would then sexually assault the victim before running from the scene, according to the release.

Anyone with information may call 410-396-2076.
