SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego Police say there may be more victims of a sexual assault suspect arrested last month.

Juan Carlos Cordero, 35, was arrested on March 21 for multiple sexual assaults, police say. Based on the evidence though, police are looking other possible victims or persons with information.

The crimes may have occurred between early 2015 and March 2019.

Cordero is currently in custody and being held on $2 million bail.

He's described as a Hispanic male, about 6-feet tall, weighing 185 pounds, with neck length brown hair and unshaven. He also may have identified himself as "JC."

Police said Cordero would approach intoxicated women at bars and nightclubs and convince them to go back to his apartment or hotel, where he sexually assaulted them.

SDPD added he may have met women through online dating apps, where "he meets us with them, has them consume alcohol and/or drugs, and sexually assaults them." He may have also taped his victims prior to or during the assaults.

Anyone with information is asked to called SDPD's sex crimes unit at 619-531-2210 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
