"I don't want to stand up here and tell the world I'm a rape victim, I don't want to be recognized walking around town and have people giving me looks, but then I told myself this is something I have to do because this guy is a serial rapist," the victim said.

The suspect was seen leaving the latest crime scene in an early 2000 Toyota 4-runner like, with a distinct silver strip across the bottom.

The Asian Peace Officers Association is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction.
