LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing a number of charges after police say he robbed and raped three women at gunpoint.
According to the arrest warrant, 21-year-old Jimmy Jackson III raped and robbed three women between Sept. 6 and Sept. 8.
On Sept. 6, police say Jackson and an unknown accomplice met the first victim at a hotel. Police say Jackson pointed a gun with a red laser on it before forcing the victim to strip down in Jackson's car.
Police say the accomplice searched the victim's car and took $250 from it while Jackson continued to hold her at gunpoint. Police say the two then drove the victim to another location where they both raped her. Police say they also took $25 from her purse after driving her back to her car.
A few hours later, police say Jackson had the second victim meet him at a different hotel. He pointed a gun at her, forced her into his vehicle and took her to another location where he raped her. Police say he also took the victim's purse and jewelry before returning her to her car.
On Sept. 8, according to the arrest warrant, Jackson approached a third woman from behind as she was unlocking the door to a hotel room. That's when police say he forced his way inside, forced the victim to strip at gunpoint in the bathroom and then raped her. Police say he used a cell phone charger cord to tie her hands and bound her feet with a flatiron cord.
Police say Jackson took the victim's car keys and cell phone and told her he was going to search her vehicle before coming back to untie her. After Jackson left the room, police say the victim was able to free herself and run for help. Police say the victim's keys were found in the parking lot but $640 had been taken from her truck.
Jackson was arrested Sept. 14. He is now facing a number of charges, including three counts of rape, three counts of sodomy, three counts of robbery, two counts of kidnapping, and one count of unlawful imprisonment.
He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $100,000 full cash bond.
