EVERETT, Wash. — Authorities in Snohomish County have arrested an Arlington man for one rape and say there may be other victims.

The Daily Herald reports (https://goo.gl/XANiA7) 24-year-old Dean Connors was arrested Tuesday and booked for first-degree rape.

A judge set his bail at $1 million Wednesday.

Everett police say Connors is wanted in connection with the 2014 rape of a woman working as a prostitute. Police said in a news release they had been unable to successfully identify a suspect in that case until other rape cases were reported.

Police say Connor told them he put a knife to a woman’s throat and forced her to have sex and also mentioned physically violent sex with others.

Detectives are working with other law enforcement agencies to investigate the other possible rape cases.
