Potential serial rapist arrested in downtown La Salle

Posted by wlpo on February 18, 2016

A really bad man has been taken off the streets in La Salle.

Back on Monday, La Salle Police heard accusations that a man had sexually assaulted several boys in the La Salle area. After some police work, they arrested 50-year-old Eric Travis on Tuesday in his La Salle apartment on First Street.

Travis faces felony charges of predatory criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sex abuse. Investigators say they are looking into the possibility that there may be “numerous more victims” of Travis in the last 30 years. For now officers say they identified two victims of Travis being boys between 12 to 14 years old.

He’s now sitting in the La Salle County Jail.
