TIFFIN (WTOL) - Tiffin police call him "Mr. Tattoo" and say he's a suspect in two recent rapes and an assault.

The crimes recently occurred near Tiffin University and Heidelberg College, putting students there on edge.

"We have a lot of teenagers here and two four-year colleges. So we do occasionally have date rapes or sexual assaults. Stranger-on-stranger rapes -- that's rare," said Police Chief David LaGrange.

The first rape occured in a house on Frost Parkway when the attacker crawled through a window and raped his victim. The second occurred in Hedges Boyer Park when a woman on a walking trail was grabbed from behind and assaulted.

On Thursday night, a woman walking near Wentz and Scott streets was assaulted but managed to break loose. Tiffin police wonder if that man might have also committed the two rapes.

Tiffin police need your help in finding the rapist.

Victims say the rapist has a tattoo on his upper right arm that says "legend." He's 6 ft. tall, weighs between 200-250 lbs. and is in his thirties. They also say he has an accent and a dark complexion.

If you know the identity of the attacker, please contact Tiffin police.
