Officials say Durron Jones is known to frequent the area of Memphis' Abington Apartments, which is where three women have been recently sexually assaulted.

This individual may be wearing layered clothing, possibly a gray and blue or maroon plaid jacket with a hoodie. The suspect wanted in the apartment rapes was said to be wearing a gray plaid jacket and a black baseball cap in one attack.

The attacks happened between February 9 and 12 at the complex in Raleigh. All three times the rapist, described as a 5-foot-7 inch man with a thin build, somehow entered the apartment armed with a handgun.

Jones should be considered armed and dangerous. He has family in the Memphis area.
