Four women raped in Robeson County

The Robeson County Sheriff's Office says four women have been sexually assaulted in more than a week in the Parkton community of the county, according to Major Anthony Thompson.

The crimes happened from December 4 to December 11.

Thompson says they've increased patrols in the Parkton area in the meantime.

He says they aren't releasing many details because the investigation is ongoing.

We're waiting to learn if the sexual assaults are connected, and if they could have been committed by a serial rapist.

It's expected more information will be released as the investigation continues.
