(WMC) - Take a good look at this face — police believe this man has raped several women, and they want to get him off the streets before he strikes again.

Memphis police are looking for Dontel Morgan in connection with the recent robbery and assault of three women.

Area residents may not recognize Dontel Morgan, but they know about problems in their complex and complexes nearby.

"The little girl that got assaulted over here, broke her window," said Donald Anderson. "They haven't got him neither. You had two rapes in the apartments over there."

Police say Morgan is known to frequent the area of Ridgeway and Knight Arnold, and Ridgeway and Winchester, where there are a lot of apartment complexes.

The assaults happened at Emerald Park and Ridgeway Terrace Apartments.

The latest assault happened Saturday and officers talked with a woman who said she was attacked just after midnight. According to the victim, the suspect tried to attack her as she walked down an apartment stairway. She says he tried to drag her away and hit her with a handgun, but she escaped.

Two weeks ago, again on a Saturday, officers found a 48-year-old and 22-year-old woman who said a man with a gun forced them into an apartment and sexually assaulted them.

Residents say they are now being vigilant.

Police are trying to determine if Morgan is responsible for any additional crimes. If you know where Dontel Morgan is call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
