A Columbus man is accused of sexually assaulting several women who accepted rides from him.
Samuel Eromosele, 29, is facing felony charges of rape and kidnapping.
Authorities say they found Eromosele, who is out on bond, after a woman wrote down a license plate number after escaping an alleged assault.
According to search warrant obtained by 10tv, the first alleged rape happened on March 27 on East 11th Avenue.
The woman told police an unknown man approached her, displayed a gun and forced her to have sex.
Four months later, another woman walking in the same area told police an unknown man offered her a ride drove her behind a Gahanna apartment building and threatened to hurt her if she didn't have sex.
On Aug. 6, another woman told police she met an unknown man at a market on East Livingston Avenue.
She told police she got into the car voluntarily because at the time all the buses had stopped running.
According to the search warrant, the man drove her to the corner of Morse and Hamilton roads and told her to get out of the vehicle.
The woman remembered the license plate, called police and within two hours Gahanna police pulled over the suspect’s car.
Eromosele was arrested and charged with abduction.
But police had more than the women’s accounts to make their case against him.
Police say DNA evidence linked Eromosele to two of his alleged victims, and police say surveillance video taken from a Speedway store in July on South High Street shows Eromosele with one of his alleged victims.
On Sept. 9, SWAT officers arrested the man and charged him with rape and kidnapping.
Eromosele was free on Thursday on $20,000 bond.
