Steven Warren Arrested for Multiple Rapes of Homeless Women
Warren, himself homeless, is believed to have attacked the women on the streets and then raped them. DNA evidence links Warren to the two crimes, according to NBC Miami.
In the first incident on August 25, police say Warren began talking to the woman before grabbing her by the neck. He dragged her to a field, stripped off her clothes and then raped her.
In the second incident, Warren jumped a woman near the Overtown Youth Center back in November. He choked her until she lost consciousness. After she awoke Warren raped her.
Though not officially charged, Warren is also a suspect in the murder of a young woman who was found strangled to death in a lot across the street from the now closed Bar and the Vagabond nightclub back in March.
Police believe that Warren may be linked to more crimes. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477).
Warren is currently in jail on $44,000 bond and faces several charges of sexual battery.
