Image Re-Released in College Town Rape Inquiry

This sketch, provided by the Riley County Police Department in 2000, shows a man investigators say could have information about a series of rapes in Manhattan and Lawrence. Police have released the image again in hopes of getting help from the public.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have re-released a sketch of a man investigators say could have information about a series of more than a dozen rapes since 2000 in the college towns of Manhattan and Lawrence. Authorities in Riley County and Lawrence say the image is of a man they want to speak with because he was seen near the location of the first attack in Manhattan. The man is described as between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall. Police say the image was released after that first rape, but generated no leads. It's being shared again in hopes that anyone in Manhattan or who attended Kansas State University at the time may recognize the person. All but one of the attacks occurred during school breaks at Kansas State and the University of Kansas.
