HOUSTON (KRLD) - Houston police say they've arrested a serial rapist who used dating apps to find his victims.

Investigators say DNA evidence linked 24-year-old Jorge Arturo Mar to at least eight victims he met online.

Houston police Lt. Jacinda Gunter says, "The suspect used a variation of his first name and his own pictures on social media which made it easier for us to identify him as quickly as we did."

Investigators say Mar lured women to his car and they say he took them to different locations and sexually assaulted them.
