TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa police say there have been no new reports of attacks by the man who has committed six sexual assaults on Midtown women since the start of June.

Sergeant Mark Mears said the three sexual assault reports received this weekend have been "acquaintance assaults."

Police continue to search for the serial assault suspect described as a Black or Hispanic male in his 20s, about 5'10" and 160 pounds. Victims say he keeps his face covered during the attacks and wears a hoodie.

Detectives believe the cases are related in part because of the things the man says during the attacks and the way he says them.

Police are recommending residents, especially single women, keep their doors locked, security systems on and have a plan in place for actions to take if an attacker enters their home. So far the man has victimized single women between the ages of 29 and 79. The majority of his victims are in their 50s and 60s.
