Suspect said to boast, ‘I’m a serial rapist’

He selected his victims randomly, authorities say, but targeted the vulnerable: the unemployed woman desperate for work, the woman recovering from a broken leg. He allegedly used charm to get close to them, before transforming into a vicious sexual predator who ignored their pleas for mercy.

Tikee Beverly, a 37-year-old Roxbury man, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court to 13 charges, including eight counts of rape, in the rapes of five women during a streak of sexual violence that began last Sept. 13 and ended only when he was arrested Feb. 4 after he allegedly raped two women in the previous two days.
