Sex offender may be behind dozens of assault cases
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Police could be closer to solving nearly two dozen sexual assault cases throughout the city.
Investigators believe Scott Dykas may be responsible for at least 20 sexual assaults. Police caught up with Dykas near N. Maryland Ave., where a woman flagged officers down and claimed the man grabbed her inappropriately.
Dykas ran off, and police had to chase him before arresting him. He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt when officers found him - and the m.o. of this east side assault matches countless others in Milwaukee's Bay View neighborhood.
A police tracking system also spotted the man's car in many of the areas where the assaults took place. Police are hoping Dyka's DNA will help bring closure to nearly two dozen victims.
