    A Sacramento rape victim made a plea to the community to take another look at sketches released by police and help investigators catch the man who assaulted her.

    She said it will be a long time before she feels safe in her home.

    A Sacramento rape victim asked the public to help police catch the man who attacked her and her roommate on October 13.

    It happened right after the unidentified woman arrived at her Natomas home from work. She said a man broke into her home, put a gun to her head and tied her up. Then he waited for her roommate to return and tied her up as well.

    The victim said her attacker stayed in her home for hours threatening the two women and repeatedly raping them.

    Sacramento police say the women were victims of the "Nor Cal" rapist, a man that DNA has linked to nine other attacks in five cities dating back to 1991. Authorities said the rapes began in Rohnert Park. He's also targeted women in Davis and Chico.

    Police Detective Paul Schindler said the rapist had blond hair and was in his 20s during the first attack. Pointing to a composite sketch, Schindler said he now appears to be in his 30s or 40s and has gained quite a bit of weight.

    On the night of the Sacramento attack, a neighbor's surveillance camera recorded an sport utility vehicle leaving the area. Police believe it belonged to the rapist. The vehicle is described as a white Toyota, Limited Edition, 4-Runner, model year 2001 to 2003. It has a roof rack, moon roof and rear tinted windows.

    Schindler said all of the victims were petite and more than half have been Asian.

    Ther Asian Peace Officers Association has offered $10,000 for information leading to the rapist's arrest and conviction.

    If anyone has information on the attacker, they are asked to call (916) 433-HELP.

    Thanks for posting this, Mr. Bubble.  Please note though that ALL women should be on our toes.  He may or may not have racial preferences and we are all potential victims.  Be safe, be alert, but never feel too safe.

    I agree, should always be on your toes. 

    I do however think that the "NorCal rapist" has a specific hate towards Asian women or has some type of perverse "Asian Fetish".
