MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Court documents say other women have come forward with allegations of sexual assault against a University of Wisconsin student already charged with assaulting and choking a female acquaintance.

The Dane County District Attorney’s office is working on completing a criminal complaint against 20-year-old Alec Cook, of Edina, Minnesota involving another three women while the Madison university has suspended Cook.

Cook is facing nine criminal charges, including strangulation and false imprisonment, after the acquaintance said he assaulted her and choked her at his apartment Oct. 12. Additional charges against Cook could be filed Thursday.

Cook has denied the charges filed against him. His attorney, Christopher Van Wagner, says prosecutors will have a hard time proving some of the allegations.
