Authorities: Suspect in series of attacks arrested
HOUSTON (AP) -- Authorities say they've arrested a 25-year-old man believed to be involved in as many as seven sexual attacks in Harris County over the last two years.
Charles Devenport is being held Tuesday at the Harris County jail on a $250,000 bond. He's charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault.
Authorities say a sketch of the suspect recently was circulated and a teenager notified a sheriff's deputy Tuesday that a man resembling the suspect was in a nearby apartment, where Devenport was found.
Each of the victims worked for an escort service and was told by the suspect to meet at a pre-arranged location. When they arrived, each was beaten and then sexually assaulted.
A lawyer for Devenport was not listed in online jail records.
