PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police in Rhode Island have released surveillance camera photos of a suspect in an attempted robbery of an exotic dancer.

Authorities believe the case may be connected to last week’s slaying in a Boston luxury hotel of a woman who advertised massage services on Craigslist.

Police say the suspects in both cases have similar descriptions.

Julissa Brisman of New York City was found dead Tuesday at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. Two nights later, a Las Vegas woman said she was tied up and held at gunpoint at the Holiday Inn Express in Warwick by a man responding to a Craiglist ad she had posted.

The four photos released Monday by Warwick police show a man in a dark jacket with a baseball cap pulled low, obscuring much of his face.
