WTOL Editorial: Help police catch south Toledo rapist

Updated:

By WTOL Vice President and General Manager Bob Chirdon - email

Toledo has at least one or possibly two serial rapists on the loose after at least seven such attacks have been reported over the past few weeks. 

Toledo Police Chief Mike Navarre says he has two task forces and a SWAT team dedicated to capturing this predator, but police still need your help.

If you see a suspicious person, call the police. If you see a suspicious vehicle, write down the license number, and then call the police. And if you know anything about these sickos, please do the decent thing and report it to the police. 

Also, Navarre wants you to avoid becoming a victim.

If you are out walking, be smart and walk with a friend. Also, be aware of your surroundings, stay alert and in lighted areas -- and do not wear a headset. 

If you are assaulted, scream and make as much noise as possible. 

The police are going to get this creep, it's just a matter of when. 

In the meantime, be careful, be vigilant and tell the police if you know anything.
