(WJLA) - Police are looking for a man they say is targeting women near the Minnesota Avenue metro station.

It’s a big warning for parents, as two of the three victims are students.

The foot bridge nearby appears to be the target area, as the predator walked out onto it in the first incident, put a gun to an adult woman, and then forced her to walk several blocks away where he raped her.

Less than a week later, it happened again – twice – in the same place. Both of these victims were teenagers.

The camera captures the beginnings of the first crime, which took place at about 11 a.m. Just six days later, it was a 17-year-old girl who he followed and demanded she come with him or else he would shoot her. Then it was a 14-year-old girl. She ran towards another man, and the attacker tried to chase her, but gave up.

At the time of these crimes, the suspect reportedly had a goatee and appeared to be in his 20’s. He may go by the name Moses. Police are on the hunt.
