Tokyo police released on Sept. 3 photos of a man wanted in connection with a series of rapes and robberies.

The suspect allegedly forced his way into the apartments of at least 13 young women living alone in Tokyo’s Toshima and Shinjuku wards. The Metropolitan Police Department and officers from Mejiro Police Station said the photos were obtained from images on a security camera at a bank. The man was videotaped as he withdrew cash using a cash card he had stolen from one of his victims.
