"Weinberg was a Hollywood producer/writer and appears to have targeted women in grocery stores, coffee shops, and other public places," the release said.

"Weinberg would approach the women who were in their 20-30s, under the guise of being a photographer and would set up photo shoots with them. Once the women were in his residence, he would sexually assault them."
