MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
A man classified as a serial rapist and sexual predator is in police
custody in Montgomery. Authorities say one man can be connected to at
least three separate rape cases and that he used social media to lure
his potential victims.
Montgomery Police have charged one man,
21-year-old Roderikus Alloway with 12 felony counts - three counts of
first degree rape, four counts of first degree sodomy, one count of
first degree sexual abuse, one count of first degree kidnapping, three
counts of first degree burglary and additional probation violations.
say Alloway is responsible for at least three separate rape cases
within the Montgomery city limits. Alloway would use social networking
sites to befriend his eventual victims before luring them to a private
"We want people to be mindful of the information that you
are posting on social networks as well as meeting individuals/strangers
from the social networks," said Sgt. S.A. Tolliver with the Montgomery
Special Victims Unit. "No one deserves to be raped. But, you have
precautions you need to take with social network sites."
say all of the crimes occurred within the same geographic area of the
city but due to the ongoing investigation, police can't be any more
specific. Tolliver added that investigators believe there may be at
least two additional victims in the same area and they ask that any
additional victims please step forward. Police anticipate additional
charges against Alloway.
"Most people wouldn't think of getting in
a car with someone they didn't know, or going off somewhere with [a
stranger]," said Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Murphy. "I think what
social media does is cloud that judgment to a certain degree. People say
'I know this person' when...you really don't. They could be pretending
to be someone they're not."
Alloway was arrested on Saturday,
April 14. MPD has been working since then to build a case against him.
Investigators believe the first rape took place in February of this year
- they say Alloway waited for almost a month before carrying out his
Alloway is currently being held in the Montgomery
County Detention Facility on bonds totaling $675,000, however, due to
his previous arrest record, his probation has been revoked.
