TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa police say there has been a seventh sexual assault attributed to the same man. This one happened early Friday morning near on Fourth Street between Harvard and Yale Avenues.

"After speaking with the victim investigators have determined there are similarities to the previous six sexual assaults," police said in a news release.

The victim in this instance was able to help police make a facial composite of the suspect. The drawing is believed to resemble the man responsible for seven assaults during the month of June.

She told News On 6 that a man came into her home and raped her around 5:30 a.m. She said it was terrifying -- but through her fear, she knew she wanted to see him so she could give a description to police.

Her description of the attacker is drastically different from the other victims' recollections. Before, the predator was thought to be mixed race and in his early 20s.

The seventh victim said the attacker is a white male about 40 years old, 5-foot-9 and 150
pounds. He is said to have a medium complexion, short straight black hair and a stubbly beard. He was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and brown leather boots.

Police are not releasing specifics of the latest assault "in consideration of the stress and trauma the victim endured and the sensitivity of the cases," the news bulletin states.

The woman told police the man had dirty clothing and smelled badly. He was armed with a fixed-blade knife.

Police say it's not the physical description -- but the similar comments that this attacker is making -- that has them linking the assaults.

"You have to remember that these victims have been through a tremendous amount of trauma and they're doing their doing the best that they can to just even give us a statement," TPD Officer Jillian Robertson said. "They're very scared, they're traumatized."

The Serial Assault Task Force continues the search to identify and arrest the man responsible for the attacks. The man had committed rape in one other assault while he rubbed himself up against his other victims.

"In the first attacks, absolutely, he was covered, he was wearing hoodies, he was even wearing a mask in some and so it was very hard to see and of course it's always a nighttime," Robertson said. "Fortunately, on this one for some reason, he was not masked."

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or to call 911 if there is immediate suspicious activity to report.
