A Milwaukee man has been arrested in connection with multiple sexual assaults.

According to officials with the district attorney’s office, a 21 year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting five women and robbing others at gunpoint. Investigators have obtained a DNA sample from the suspect and the district attorney’s office is currently working with victims.

Members of the Uptown community where the attacks took place expressed relief after hearing the news of the arrest at a neighborhood meeting. “I’m relieved because I have teenage daughters and you’re real nervous when you leave the house,” said Shewaunee Edwards, who lives near the area where the attacker struck. “I am relieved they have a suspect at this time.”
