The Akron Area Board of Realtors is warning women real estate agents of a possible sexual predator.
They released a safety alert on their website advising realtors to be extremely cautious when setting up appointments after several reports of suspicious activity.
The agency says a man has been scheduling appointments with women to look at properties and insists on meeting with them after dark.
He has been using the name Wayne Martin, however he could be using additional names.
The suspect is described as a 54-year-old white male, 6'5'' and 200 lbs with balding reddish-brown hair.
The agency says the description matches that of a man who was charged with attempted abduction and gross sexual imposition in Jan. 2010. He served one year in jail and was released in July, 2011.
They advise realtors to avoid scheduling appointments with anyone you have not met at your office and ask for identification.
If you have any information regarding this matter, call Detective Shaffer of the Akron Police Department at 330-375-2463.
