MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) - A man suspected of being a serial rapist has been indicted by a Weakley County grand jury for three separate rapes that occurred in Martin this year.

Thirty-five-year-old Bruce Tuck of Gleason has remained jailed without bond since his Sept. 2 arrest.

According to radio station WCMT, the three "true bill" indictments contain a total of 22 criminal charges including multiple counts of rape, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, theft, vandalism and sexual battery.

Prosecutors say Tuck is also a suspect in other rapes reported in Shelby County although he has not been formally charged with those crimes.

Tuck will remain jailed pending arraignment Thursday in Weakley County Circuit Court on the charges listed in the indictments.
