BILLINGS -

Billings Police are still trying to find a man who they believe was involved in several sexual assaults in Billings.

Friday, Police Chief Rich St. John released new information on the attacks. St. John says there have been a total of four sexual assaults and two sexual assault attempts on the West End and central area of Billings.

"In the four home invasions, the female victims were sexually assaulted and robbed. In all cases, a weapon was used," says St. John.

The latest attack happened on July 2nd, on the 24th Street West area.

"These assaults generally take place between 2 AM and 6 AM, roughly a month and a month and a half a apart, towards the middle to the end of the month," says St. John.

He says all of the victims have similar hair color, and they live in the same general area. St. John reminds citizens to lock doors and windows.

"Make note of unfamiliar people or vehicles in your neighborhood, do not provide personal information to people that you don't know," says St. John.

And if you have any information, which might help lead investigators to the attacker, call police. The suspect is still being described as a slender, white male between 25 and 35 years old and less than six feet tall. It's an on-going investigation, and police encourage citizens to be aware of any and all information relating to the case.
