Governor ups reward to $25,000 | Crime
TROY, AL (WSFA) - Governor Bentley is throwing money into the pot to help catch the person responsible for two rapes at a Troy mobile home park.
Bentley says information indicated that the same person raped two young women at the same controlled-access mobile home park on March 26.
“We believe someone has information that can help put a predator behind bars,” Governor Bentley said. “We are urging anyone with information to please come forward and provide a tip for investigators. Your information is needed to provide justice for the victims and peace of mind for the community.”
The first incident occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. on March 26. Police originally asked anyone who lives in Hunters Mountain or was visiting around that time to contact them if they remember seeing the suspect described as a 40 to 50-year-old black male, 6' to 6'1" in height, weighing approximately 250 pounds with a "low" haircut. He was last seen wearing a dark blue shirt and loose fitting black or blue jeans.
The second incident happened the later the same day - around 7:30 p.m.
Anyone who can help with the investigation is asked to dial the Troy Police Secret Witness Line at (334) 566-5555.
