Serial rapist may be targeting alumni members of Delta Sigma Theta sorority in Plano,

Serial rapist may be targeting alumni members of Delta Sigma Theta sorority in Plano, Denton County

A serial rapist may be behind at least four attacks in Plano and Denton County on local alumni members of the predominantly black Delta Sigma Theta sorority, according to local organization members.
An email alert sent to Dallas alumnae chapter members this morning said the attacks have occurred over the past 11 months, including one Friday night. Plano police did not confirm which sorority members were being targeted, but they said in a news release that the victims are all black women in their mid-50s to mid-60s and that they were attacked in their Plano, Coppell and Corinth homes between the hours of 9 p.m. and 4 a.m.
Two of the area alumni chapters have been asked to release rosters to local police, according to the alumni email alert.

Serial Rapist Targets Sorority Alums, Police Say
PLANO, Texas - Police in at least three different North Texas cities are looking for a man who has sexually assaulted several members of the same sorority alumnae group in the last year.

All of the attacks have happened in the victims' homes in Plano, Coppell, and Corinth, according to a news release from Plano police public information officer David Tilley.

Be safe, Sorors. I hope they catch the alleged serial rapist.

I want news sources to consistently use "alumnae" instead of "alumni."

I work in Plano. This sucks, and you don't often hear stories like this coming out of the city.

I hope they all stay safe

It finally showed up in the national media (at least, this is the first mention I've seen personally):

Beyond awful. My prayers for Delta Sigma Theta.
