PALM SPRINGS, FL (WFLX) - Palm Beach County sheriff's officials say they have received more than a dozen calls about a serial rapist after "America's Most Wanted" aired a segment on the case over the weekend.

A Palm Springs woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, is one of four local victims. The details in her case are a little different from the other three because the rapist broke into her home in the middle of the night.

The three other women were attacked on the street. Police say DNA links all four cases.

Police are looking for a Hispanic man of average build. He's a smoker with a heavy accent who may not be in this country legally.

The attacks happened in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Lake Worth and Palm Springs.
