Lansing police Chief Mark Alley announced Thursday afternoon the arrest of a man they believe killed five Lansing women and attempted to kill one more.

They are releasing few details on the suspect, but say he is the man seen in the sketch police released on Tuesday. A 56-year-old woman survived an attack, and was able to help police create a composite.

Police are connecting the man they've arrested to the murders of Ruth Hallman, Debra Renfors, Deborah Cooke, Sandra Eichorn, and Karen Delgado-Yates. All five were attacked this summer.

Mayor Virg Bernero called the man a "monster" and said a fog had been lifted from the city. Alley says the women of Lansing should breathe a sigh of relief.
