Police say a fugitive Massachusetts child rape suspect is also suspected in at least six sexual assaults and robberies in several states and may be headed back eastward across the country after being on the West Coast.
Massachusetts State Police said Tuesday 26-year-old Gregory Lewis is believed to have been in the Columbus, Ohio, area Sunday night and in the Indianapolis area where he committed a robbery on Saturday night. He was believed to be in the Denver area in early October, and in Portland, Oregon; Boise, Idaho; and Salt Lake City at mid-month.
Lewis appears thinner, has less facial hair, and more hair on his head, according to Massachusetts state police officials.
Police said Lewis is suspected kidnapping, robbing and sexually assaulting women working in escort services he arranged to meet at hotels. He is believed to be driving a blue 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Lewis, from Southbridge, was last seen here Sept. 25. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Police have asked that members of the public not approach Lewis. Please call 911 immediately if you spot Lewis.
If you have any information on the location of Lewis, please call state police at 1-800-Kapture.
