SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A man suspected of being the "NorCal Rapist" appeared in court in Sacramento on Wednesday.

The hearing is set to determine if there's enough evidence against Roy Waller to proceed with a trail.

On September 20, 2018, detectives from the Sacramento Police Department arrested Waller, in Berkeley.

Authorities at the time said he was connected with at least 10 rapes between 1991 and 2006, in six Northern California counties. Those included; Butte, Yolo, Sacramento, Sonoma, Solano, Contra Costa.

They said Waller broke into homes late at night or forced victims to withdraw money from ATMs. They said he assaulted his victims repeatedly.

Once the preliminary hearing phase of the case is concluded, both sides will argue why the case should or shouldn't go to trial.
