GREAT NECK, N.Y. (WPIX)—Police are inching closer to catching the predator that has been terrorizing families in Great Neck and Kings Point.
"We've gotten a lot of tips," said Nassau County Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey.
One of those tips has lead to a person of interest.
"We had a possible individual we interviewed; we were able to get voluntary DNA (and) we should get results on that."
While police are keeping a close eye on that individual, they are continuing to act on calls made to the Crimestoppers hotline.
Police believe the suspect may now have left that area and could be back in Hempstead where DNA evidence linked him to a July assault where he nearly killed a woman in a fit of rage with hammer.
A home depot surveillance camera caught his image before the attack.
DNA evidence from one of the recent home invasions has also linked him to the 2009 kidnapping and rape of a 2-year-old girl in Texas.
The PIX 11 News is not only reporting on all of the latest developments, but is also pitching in resources to aid the police in capturing the fugitive. Last week PIX 11's Ellyn Marks and handed out a thousand wanted fliers in Great Neck, and the news team has also been circulating fliers in Hempstead.
Nassau County police are urging anyone with information to call their anonymous tip line at 1-800-244- TIPS (8477).
