EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) - A San Diego County man charged with raping two women he met through online dating is also accused of inappropriate behavior by another woman he met on a dating website.

U-T San Diego reports (https://bit.ly/1f99NJR ) a woman testified Monday at a hearing that 38-year-old Sean Banks touched her body inappropriately a few years ago when the two of them spent time together in London.

The woman is not one of the alleged victims named in Banks’ rape case. But prosecutors could use her testimony at trial to show a pattern of behavior by the defendant.

Defense attorney Brian White said he plans to ask a judge to exclude the testimony before trial.

Banks was arrested last year and is charged with raping two women he met on dating sites.
