Nashville police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man suspected of being a serial rapist.

Willie Williams Jr. is easily identifiable by a large, distinctive tattoo of the word “BLESSED” on the front of his neck.

According to Breaking911, the 20-year-old is wanted on multiple charges of aggravated rape and aggravated robbery.

Williams has three outstanding warrants for his arrest in 2 of 6 criminal cases.

In one case, Williams allegedly contacted a 22-year-old woman through a personal ad offering escort services.

But police say when the pair agreed to meet at a local motel, Williams produced a handgun and demanded that she perform oral sex on him without charge.

In another case, Williams allegedly arranged to meet a 29-year-old woman for a date in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Cane Ridge Road.

When she arrived, Williams got into the passenger seat of her vehicle and brandished a large hunting knife. She started screaming and Williams fled the vehicle.

Williams is also suspected of sexually assaulting five other women ranging in age from 21 to 34.

Police say don’t approach Williams if you see him. He is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Anyone who sees Williams or knows his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. A cash reward is being offered.
