Rape suspect linked to other cases

An Heredia man detained Thursday is being investigated as a serial rapist.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said the 34-year-old man was detained at his home in Santa Lucía, Barva, involving a single allegation of forcible rape.

That case involves a 20-year-old woman who was abducted at knife-point along with her year-old child Tuesday night from an Heredia park.

A man brought the woman to a home from which she was able to flee Wednesday, agents said.

The crime resembles other cases of rape reported in the area, agents said.
