Police asked Saturday that additional victims come forward after a fifth-year UCLA student was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two women, four years after being found not guilty of rape in Massachusetts.
Kay Andrew Bannon was arrested Wednesday at his home in the 300 block of North Sierra Bonita in Fairfax (map) on three felony counts that included rape and sodomy involving two women, according to a Los Angeles Police Department news release.
The 33-year-old University of California, Los Angeles student was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 2012 who responded to a roommate-wanted advertisement.
The second victim was assaulted in 2014 after allegedly meeting Bannon through a friend.
Both victims were allegedly assaulted in his Fairfax home.
A third case was pending review by the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office, and additional charges may be filed, the news release stated.
“If you recognize this guy … please contact the detectives and tell them your story so hopefully we can clear a lot of these guys and put them in jail for a long time,” LAPD Officer Nuria Vanegas said.
Bannon was arrested in 2010 for allegedly raping someone in Massachusetts, but was found not guilty at trial.
The Oregon native pleaded not guilty to all three felony counts, UCLA’s student-run newspaper the Daily Bruin reported.
He was being held in lieu of $300,000 bail.
