DALLAS –– Van Dixson, the neighborhood watch captain linked by DNA evidence to four of nine Fair Park area rapes, has been arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Sources within both the U.S. Marshals and the Dallas Police Department confirmed the arrest.
Dixson, 38, was named as a suspect on September 7, four days after the department announced that a serial rapist was targeting women near Fair Park. He was linked by DNA evidence to one of the rapes the next day. On Monday police said DNA evidence tied him to another three.
Police had issued a warrant for aggravated sexual assault and set his bond at $1 million.
