David Hopper was arrested after taken two rings stolen from one of his rape victims into a pawn shop in Northern Kentucky, the store then called police who matched the rings up with a description by the victim, who also was able to confirm the rings where hers.

Authorities arrested a man in Burlington, Kentucky after what they say was a slip up on his part. Police have connected him to two recent sexual assaults near Cincinnati. Now they want to know if he's responsible for nine others, including two in central Ohio.

“You look at his picture and you see the lazy eye, the blue eyes that are there. It's scary just to look at those pictures,” Warren County Sheriff Tom Ariss said, comparing descriptions of the serial rapist to 42-year-old David Hopper.

Hopper is being charged with rape and aggravated robbery in connection with the sexual assault of two women inside a Warren County model home over the weekend.
