(03-24) 15:57 PDT OAKLAND -- Lovelle Mixon was linked by DNA to the February rape of a 12-year-old girl who was dragged off the street at gunpoint in the East Oakland neighborhood where Mixon's sister lived, police said Tuesday.


Mixon, 26, a fugitive parolee who shot four Oakland police officers to death Saturday before he was killed as he hid inside his sister's apartment, might have committed as many as five other rapes in the same neighborhood in recent months, investigators said.

All the victims of those rapes were attacked in the early-morning hours, as was the girl who was raped Feb. 5, and the assailant's behavior was similar in all the assaults, police said.

Investigators are trying to determine Mixon's motive for opening fire on two motorcycle police officers after they pulled him over for an unspecified traffic violation Saturday afternoon at MacArthur Boulevard and 74th Avenue, the same neighborhood where the rapes occurred. No arrest warrant had been issued in the rape case, but one had been issued after Mixon skipped a meeting with his parole officer in February.
