Camden Police Suspect Serial Rapist Camden police are checking into the possibility that a serial rapist is on the loose.

Investigators said that three recent attacks could be related.

"The description of the individuals was fairly similar in the sense that he was a light-skinned individual -- either an African-American or a Latino male. But what was most striking was that he had black gloves on and also used a knife to commit this assault," said Vincent Sarubbi, the Camden County prosecutor.

Police have released a sketch of the attacker in the Leap Academy rape (pictured).

The first rape happened early last month, near the Leap Academy University Charter. A 17-year-old student was snatched off the street on her way to class and raped. Two weeks later, a Rutgers University student was attacked a few blocks away. A third attack took place Thursday at a photo shop across the street from Rutgers.

Women are keeping a close eye on their surroundings.

"It's scary. But you have to keep your eyes open and watch where you're going. Look around. Know what's around you," said one female student.
