Fort Wayne police are looking for information on a man linked to three sexual assaults in the southeast section of the city over a two year period.

In each incident the attacker has broken into the home in the early morning hours and then sexually assaulted a woman.

DNA samples that were recovered on each of the three scenes point to the same suspect being responsible for each assault.

The sexual assaults took place in the 4500 block of South Park Drive in May; 5000 block of Bowser Street in August; and, the 5200 block of Bowser Street in September 2015, police said.

The Fort Wayne Police Department is asking residents to report any suspicious activity in areas surrounding the incidents by calling 911. Anyone with information that could assist investigators in identifying a possible suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 436-7867.
