Philly police say suspect in recent Pennypack Park knife attacks is also the Fairmount Park rapist

Philadelphia police identified Elias Dias, 46, as the suspected Fairmount Park rapist behind a series of cold case sexual assaults and a homicide that happened between 2003-2007. Dias was arrested Monday and charged in a separate series of knife attacks that happened in November on the Pennypack Trail. Authorities say DNA evidence appears to link Dias to the 2003 killing of Rebecca Park, a 30-year-old medical student who was found dead at Fairmount Park.
