Pa. man charged with rape may have victims in Pittsburgh area


FBI Pittsburgh investigators are helping agents in Philadelphia investigate claims that a rape suspect has victims in the Pittsburgh area. 

Authorities in Lehigh Valley arrested and charged Seth Mull, a Hellerton, Pa. resident, for luring women from across the United States. 

According to police, Mull met his victims through online dating sites, drugged them and raped them. 


A woman in Bethlehem claims that Mull abducted and attacked her before forcing her to do cocaine and smoke crystal meth. 

Since Mull’s arrest, over a dozen victims have come forward, according to the Northampton District Attorney’s Office. 

"What we're seeing here is a serial predator because we do believe there are more young girls that have been traumatized, raped, sexually assaulted, strangled, threatened, who may be in fear," said Northampton District Attorney John Morganelli. 

Mull is also believed to be linked to more sex trafficking crimes in San Diego, Chicago and Honolulu.
