BRUSSELS, Belgium (CNN) -- Belgian police have arrested a man in their investigation of a serial killer who in the past month has dumped trash bags containing the severed body parts of six women in the southern city of Mons, officials said Friday.

Officials said they arrested the man earlier in the week, and kept the arrest secret in the best interest of the investigation.

The suspect, whose name was not released, was described as a Belgian male who knew the only identified victim, Nathalie Godart, 21.

The killer has left about 30 body parts in 15 trash bags at four locations around Mons.

Reuters contributed to this report.
