OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Police say a man accused of kidnapping and sexually abusing women and teenage girls in northern Utah may have committed other crimes across the southwestern United States.

Ogden police said Tuesday they’re searching for possible victims in other parts of Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and California.

The Deseret News reports 42-year-old Genaro Gabino De Jesus of Ogden is accused of sexually assaulting his victims after offering them rides at bus stops, parking lots and other places in Ogden.

He was booked into the Weber County Jail last month on suspicion of kidnapping and forcible sexual abuse. No formal charges have been filed. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.

Detectives say he offered the victims rides as recent as last month in a green Chevrolet Cavalier, a brown pickup truck and a 2004 white Ford Freestar van.
