William Patterson worked with the suspect Jesus Alvarez Ramos and says he's a sweet, gentle man who is incapable of the attacks.
Patterson says Ramos does not even match the description of the attacker, although the victims did identify him.
Patterson says Ramos is only about 5'3" and weighs about 110 pounds. The police description reads 5'9" and 175 pounds.
Patterson saw Ramos in jail Saturday morning and says he's being railroaded.
"I took an interpreter with me and he kept saying he'd paid his fine," Patterson said. "He didn't even know why he was in jail. When we asked him if he'd slept, he said he hadn't slept since he's been there and he's very freaked out."
Williams says he may know who really attacked those women. He's adds he's going to talk to police on Monday.
The UNC Public Safety Department declined to comment.
