PASADENA, Texas – The driver of a car involved in a rape case in Pasadena is believed to be involved in at least two other similar crimes, Pasadena police said. 

Police said the rapist is driving a green Ford Mustang with front-end damage. The front driver's side quarter panel is a dark color, different from the rest of the vehicle.

Pasadena Police released new images of the vehicle at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

"This is a scary guy who needs to be caught," said Chief Josh Bruegger. 

Investigators said the man followed a woman leaving a Fitness Connection gym and raped her at gunpoint on Monday night. 

Surveillance video showed the Mustang parking at the gym at 11:18 p.m. and waiting there until the woman left and then followed her.

When the woman walked up to her front door, the man approached her at gunpoint and forced her back into her own car, police said. Police said the man forced the woman to drive her to a nearby neighborhood, where the attack happened.

After the attack, police said, he ran back to his own car and took off.
