ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 35-year-old Anchorage man has been charged in the rapes of several women.

Anchorage police say in a release that Clifford Lee is being held on two bonds totaling $1.25 million and had a court appearance scheduled later Tuesday.

Police say starting in late June and continuing for five weeks, five women reported being sexually assaulted by a man after accepting a ride. Police say the man sometimes used a stun gun.

Authorities say he preyed on women who were drunk and alone in midtown or downtown. Police say he offered rides, took them to South Anchorage and raped them before dropping them off.

One victim was able to identify the residence where she was raped, and police developed leads from there. He faces 10 counts of sexual assault.
