DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police say DNA evidence has now linked a crime-watch volunteer to four of as many as eight sexual assaults reported over two months in one Dallas neighborhood.

However, police Maj. Jeff Cotner says Van Dralan Dixson is not yet in custody.

The 38-year-old Dixson had been charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault relating to a rape and robbery in the Fair Park neighborhood, just southeast of downtown. Cotner told reporters Monday night that three more aggravated sexual assault counts had been filed. Bail is set at $1 million for each count, Cotner says.

Cotner says DNA test results from two attacks were still pending, and no evidence was available from two other attack cases.
