At a bail hearing Monday, Northampton County Assistant District Attorney Tatum Wilson said Swaby is a person of interest in sexual assaults in Bethlehem, Lehigh County; West Conshohocken, Montgomery County; and in Florida.

Wilson told the judge that Swaby has not yet been charged in those crimes as they are awaiting DNA results.

Swaby’s attorney sought to have his $300,000 bail reduced, but the judge sided with the prosecution and refused to reduce the bail due to the potential threat to the community.
