13 victims of Fort Apache Reservation rapist


Authorities have identified two more victims of the serial rapist who is threatening the Fort Apache Reservation in Arizona.

The suspect, described as Native American, has been tied to 13 rapes so far. Twelve of the victims are under the age of 18. One victim is 20 years old.

The victims, all Native American, were afraid to come forward because they thought a police officer raped them. The suspect has been posing as an officer.

The attacks occurred late at night on a trail used as a shortcut between tribal communities.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is leading an investigation of the incidents. A $10,000 reward is being offered.

The reservation is home to the White Mountain Apache Tribe.
