Tulsa Police hold a news conference to announce they have made arrests in a total of seven Tulsa  rapes. This includes last month's pre-dawn jogger attack at Tulsa LaFortune Park.  Suspect Willis McPherson, also known as Willis Sisco, has been charged in that attack as well as another at a nearby apartment complex. In custody in connection with five unrelated rape cases is Michael Ray Harris. Police say it's rare to have serial rapists attacking in Tulsa, and very unusual to have two operating in the area at the same time. Both suspects are now behind bars.
