Jasper police say they've received over 50 tips from the public on the whereabouts of accused rapist, Randall Kratzer Jr., but they still haven't found him. 

Kratzer has outstanding warrants for his arrest for rape and sexual battery. The charges stem from an incident that happened in August on the north side of Jasper.

Police say Kratzer forced his way into an apartment, and once inside, battered and raped a woman he knew. She was eventually able to escape. She went to a nearby apartment and called police, but before Jasper police arrived, Kratzer had fled.

Officials say Kratzer has family and friends in Perry County and Spencer County. Detective Rick Chambers says public tips have pointed to possible hideouts in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. 

Chambers says they're working with several police departments to find Kratzer.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Kratzer should call Jasper Police Dept. at (812) 482-2255 or the anonymous tip line (812) 482-COPS.
