SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio authorities say an 18-year-old man believed responsible for multiple sexual assaults and robberies of women in the city’s medical center over two years has been indicted.

A Bexar County grand jury Thursday returned six indictments against Anton Jamail Harris.

Prosecutors say Harris became a suspect after he matched a description provided by one of his victims. Detectives obtained a DNA sample from him and he was arrested in June, two years after the first attack.

Police say Harris would follow victims and force him way into their homes or just knock on their doors. Then he’d threaten them with a gun or knife, sexually assault them and steal property.

He’s held in the Bexar County Jail under bonds totaling $775,000 while awaiting trial.
