(Memphis) A man wanted by U.S. Marshals for rape in Delaware is also a person of interest for Memphis police.

Durron Jones is known to frequent the area around the Abington Apartments, and should be considered armed and dangerous.

The 22-year-old is 5’6″ and 110 lbs. with brown eyes and black hair.

He has a tattoo on his right hand, and MPD says he might be wearing layered clothing, “possibly a gray and blue or maroon plaid jacket with a hoodie.”

You may also remember that three women have been raped at the Abington Apartments.

Memphis police say officers are patrolling the area and making the apartment complex a high priority, patrolling at all hours of day and night, because this rapist is striking at all hours.

The man is breaking into womenā€™s apartments at the complex and attacking them when they get home.

So far, police know the man has attacked at least three times: February 9, February 12, and this Tuesday.

MPD described him as “a male Black, 5ā€™7ā€, thin build. In one of the attacks, he was wearing an orange shirt, maroon and gray plaid jacket, black baseball cap, and armed with a handgun.ā€”
