Probe of alleged serial rapist spreads to 4th state

Authorities say a Pueblo man suspected of sexually assaulting more than a dozen women in New Mexico and Texas and trying to kill a Pueblo police officer has prompted inquiries from other investigators in Colorado and Kansas.

Pueblo County sheriff's investigators said Wednesday they've been in contact with authorities in Fort Collins and Lawrence, Kansas, about Robert Howard Bruce, 47, of Pueblo.

Bruce is being held on suspicion of trying to kill a Pueblo officer who was to testify against him in a peeping Tom case.

Authorities say DNA from the attempted-murder case linked Bruce to assaults in Albuquerque, Austin and Lubbock.
