The Mason police department has arrested a man they say is linked physically to seven sexual assaults.
Through DNA evidence Dean Alan Strunk has been linked to sexual assaults in Mason between July 1994 and October 1999.
Strunk, 48, was arraigned Wednesday morning on one count of rape. He is being held at the Warren County Jail. Other charges are pending once the evidence is presented to the Grand Jury on the other cases.
Police say that the sexual assaults against 7 young female victims were linked together by a single suspect's DNA.
