A man already charged with rape is now accused of attacking another woman, and police are concerned there may be even more victims.

Metro detectives said Mervan Ibrahim picked up a prostitute late last year, drove her to a vacant home on Eckhart Drive and then assaulted her.

Investigators have now identified a second woman who said she was raped at the same house by a man believed to be Ibrahim.

DNA testing is pending in that case, and Ibrahim remains in jail on $250,000 bond.

If you have any information about these two investigations or other women who may have had contact with Ibrahim, call the Metro Sex Crimes Unit at 862-7540.
