Harvey Miguel Robinson is a prisoner on death row in Pennsylvania, thought to be one of the youngest serial killers in history; he was only 18 years old when he was apprehended for his crimes. He is also the first serial killer in the history of Allentown, Pennsylvania.
He raped and killed three women. Their names are:
He raped and brutalized his fourth victim, Denise Sam-Cali, but she escaped. Robinson returned to her home several nights later and attempted to break in. A police officer was posted at the home, and when Robinson attempted to break in again, the police officer shot him. Robinson was tracked to a local hospital, and was arrested.
Harvey also had a 5th victim, who was only 5 years old when Harvey broke into her house. He intended to rape (and possibly kill) the child's mother, but changed his mind when he saw her in bed with a boyfriend. Instead, Harvey crept into a room shared by the 5 year old and her younger sister. There, he raped the 5-year-old, choked her, and left her for dead. It is believed that Harvey had stalked the mother for several days beforehand, as he did his other victims.
The story of his crimes, especially that of Denise Sam-Cali, was filmed in 1996 as No One Could Protect Her, with Joanna Kerns playing the part of the victim.
