A suspected rapist is caught on surveillance video. Police in Orange hope it will lead to an arrest. The tape shows the suspect entering a gas station just before 11 a.m. Monday morning.

The suspect can be seen chatting with a young college student waiting at a nearby bus stop at East Chapman Avenue and South Hewes.

Police say he offered her a ride. On the tape, the girl can be seen getting into the car.

They say the woman was sexually assaulted a short distance away in a secluded restaurant parking lot.

The suspect then dropped the victim off near Santiago Canyon College, where she attends class.

The attacker's car, possibly a Saturn, is a tan, two-door model with a spoiler on the trunk and chrome rims.

If you have any information, you're urged to call the Orange Police Department at (714) 744-7456.
