    San Diego Police Arrest Suspected Serial Rapist

    A suspected serial rapist is behind bars Saturday morning, being held on $325,000 bail.

    Police have identified the suspect as Robert James Purdy. Authorities say the 41-year-old man is a security guard who works for Wackenhut Security Services. He’s a man who officers say used his badge and his fake cop talk to target women working the streets along El Cajon Boulevard.

    Investigators tell News 8 that so far they know of four rape victims. All are prostitutes and two are minors.

    Wednesday night police say they responded to 33rd and University, after a 15-year-old girl was spotted running down the road yelling for help, after she said she had been raped.

    According to authorities, it was that victim's story that jogged an officer's memory. Several weeks ago a man matching that rapist's description was given a ticket at a nearby intersection.

    Police say after the victim picked Purdy's picture out of a photo line-up. He was then arrested at his home on 49th Street. He’s charged with rape by force, kidnapping and sodomy with a girl under the age of sixteen.

    Purdy is locked up in the downtown jail. His bail amount has been set at $325,000.

    The big break in this case came from two street cops - officers Bill Carter and Nick Browder.
