Georgia police are desperate for an accused rapist who claims to be a youth pastor before he sexually assaults women.

Marco Aries Johnson, 46, is suspected of rape by the Dunwoody Police Department. Police have not revealed how many victims Johnson allegedly abused, but are seeking counsel to discern more information about him.

Investigators say Johnson is targeting women near bus stops. After approaching them and striking up a conversation, the suspect allegedly told them that he was a “priest of the EFY religion and a spiritual reader”.
