Tulsa Police say there has been another attack by the man who has been sexually assaulting Tulsa women.

TPD Officer Jillian Roberson confirmed to News On 6 that police are investigating an eighth attack that took place in the 1200 block of South 75th East Avenue.

The victim is a woman in her 60s who was home alone when the man entered her house at 5:30 a.m.

Police say the man's actions and statements during the assault are consistent with the other seven attacks.

"In low light conditions, the suspect appeared to be a light-skinned black male about 5'08" tall, thin build with muscular arms, no facial hair and short hair. He was wearing long basketball-style shorts, T-shirt and tennis shoes. The suspect's face was partially covered," Roberson said in a news bulletin.

The victim in the seventh attack Friday, June 27, 2014, was able to help police make a composite drawing that is believed to resemble the man responsible for a series of sexual assaults, mostly on women in their 50s and 60s.

The description of the suspect has varied as the attacks continued, but police stress that there are similarities that link the crimes.

Roberson addressed the differences in the victims' descriptions after the seventh attack:

"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," Roberson told News On 6 reporter Tess Maune last week.

"They're very scared; they're traumatized," she said.
