A Pasadena man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges he forcibly raped four women and sexually battered another, with four of the attacks occurring in the past two months, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

Anthony Joseph Miller, 51, was tied to two additional victims Tuesday, one day after Pasadena police announced he was arrested in connection with three sexual assaults.

The felonies he’s charged with in a 13-count criminal complaint filed by the DA’s office span November 2011 to just last week.

In the most recent incident, on Sept. 24, Miller faces two counts of forcible rape, two counts forcible oral copulation and one count each of sodomy by use of force and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime.

The defendant is also accused in a string of assaults that occurred in early August.

He’s charged with forcible rape and sodomy by use of force against a second victim on Aug. 11, and forcibly raping a third woman two days before, on Aug. 9.

Prosecutors have also charged Miller with sexual battery by restraint and false imprisonment by violence against a fourth victim the week before that, on Aug. 3.

The allegations involving the fifth victim took place several years before, on Nov. 23, 2011. Miller is charged with forcible rape and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime in connection with that incident.

Authorities did not provide details on where the rapes and sexual battery took place.

“Corroborating evidence” linked Miller to three of the sexual assaults reported to Pasadena police between August and September, officials previously said in a news release.

Investigators took Miller into custody on a felony warrant last Thursday with the assistance of U.S. Marshals.

He was being held at the Men’s Central Jail on $10.45 million bail, inmate records show.

If convicted as charged, the defendant could face more than 270 years to life in state prison.

Miller is scheduled to return to court on Oct. 24.

Pasadena police are continuing to investigate the case.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the number of women the defendant was charged with raping.
