Joplin police are investigating two alleged rapes that seem to have happened within hours of each other. Police say the alleged crimes involve the same suspect, but two different women. Police will not say where the alleged crimes happened, fearing that information may hurt their investigation.
Officials will say the alleged incident happened in an apartment located in central Joplin. Police are still looking for the suspect, but say they know who the suspect is, and the public is not in danger.
