Police believe there could be more alleged victims that Darren Sharper assaulted

Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report conducted an in-depth report on former NFL safety Darren Sharper and the rape and sexual assault allegations that he’s currently facing that span eight women over five states.

One thing that really struck me is that police believe there are more women out there that Sharper may have assaulted.

Two law enforcement officials who asked not to be identified—one in Arizona and one in Louisiana—believe in the possibility of more alleged Sharper victims who have declined to come forward.

Sharper may have been targeting a particular kind of woman.

Few details about Sharper’s accusers have been made available by law enforcement. Yet police reports in Tempe show that at least some of the female complainants aren’t just similar in terms of their allegations—they are also similar in appearance: white, with long hair, in their early 20s or younger, thin build, standing approximately 5’6″ tall.
