HAMILTON, Ohio (FOX19) - A Franklin man was arrested Thursday in Hamilton on charges of raping at least two women.

Court documents say Taranpreet Singh, 29, was arrested on rape, aggravated robbery, and kidnapping in sexual activity.

On or about Aug. 23, 2020, Singh forced one of his victims by gunpoint into his vehicle, drove to a location, forced the victim out of the vehicle at gunpoint, made her take off her clothes, and then raped her, Butler County court documents said.

The Hamilton Police Department believe there are more victims.

Court documents show that Singh will be in court Friday for a preliminary hearing.
