MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The search is back on for a serial rapist in Memphis after detectives released a man they called a possible suspect.
"I said he can't be no rapist, no, no, no," said Emma Woodard.
Woodward kept her cool as police swarmed her home in the Westwood section of Memphis on Tuesday, and took her grandson in for questioning. It was all part of an investigation into three sexual assaults that had occurred since April.
"This was God's business," Woodard said.
Sex Crimes investigators said two of the assaults occurred in the Westwood area, and the third near the intersection of Summer Avenue and Graham. Police said in all three cases the suspect was driving a black Ford Mustang.
Woodward remembers the first time she heard about the sexual assaults. She said she remembered the detail about the black Ford Mustang.
"I said 'Oh my God, they say he got a black Mustang,' I said I imagine they going to mess with my grandson," said Woodard.
Woodard said her grandson was home a few hours later, and back to work on Wednesday.
"He is a serious young man, about life, he is serious," Woodard said.
A police spokeswoman said Woodard's grandson was only a "possible suspect" and was released without being charged. Police said Wednesday they're still searching for a suspect.
