Police seek sex predator

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 by The Press in Police Log

Do you know this man? Have you ever dated him or talked to him? If so, local authorities would like to talk to you.

Authorities believe Seth Mull is a sexual predator who has victimized women nationwide. He is currently jailed for a rape allegedly committed at the Bethlehem Holiday Inn Express on Cherry Lane.

Bethlehem police first arrested Seth Mull on October 28 on charges of raping, strangling and otherwise intimidating a female victim at the Bethlehem Holiday Inn Express hotel on Cherry Lane. When his mug shot was published, police soon discovered they may have a serial sexual predator on their hands. Several victims have come forward locally, in Philadelphia and from as far away as Hawaii.

At a news conference late last week, NorCo DA John Morganelli said Mull uses several internet sites to meet women. He portrays himself as a charming and caring person, winning a woman’s trust. But that soon changes. He forces the women in his life to take drugs until they are addicted, refers to them as his “property,” and even has even required them to sign sex slave contracts. He forces these women to participate in orgies that he films and prostitutes them.

“He is a predator,” said Chief Mark DiLuzio, who added that “ a message like this from the DA and the police department is necessary for the safety of the community. We need to locate victims and get them the assistance they need. “

Unlike sex traffickers who prey on undocumented aliens, Morganelli said Mull’s victims are American women, mostly in their 20s.

People with knowledge about Mull can contact Bethlehem police Detective Brian Quinn at 610-997-7691 or 610-865-7187; Bethlehem police Detective Brad Jones at 610-865-7146; or the Northampton County District Attorney crime tip line at 610-829-6645.
