LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a second suspect after two women were sexually assaulted near the U of L campus last week.  

Eighteen-year-old Dezmeontai Lamont Tinsley was taken into custody around 3 p.m. Tuesday. According to the arrest report, Tinsley and a juvenile accomplice forced the victim into her vehicle at gunpoint in the early morning  hours of Sept. 12.

Police say the victim was forced to withdraw money from an ATM before she was taken to an unknown location where she was forced to perform oral sex on both suspects. The victim was allowed to leave, but police say the suspects kept her car. 

Tinsley is charged with sodomy, robbery and kidnapping. He's being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $25,000 cash bond. 

Police arrested a 16-year old in connection with both cases on Sept. 16. His name has not been released because he is a juvenile.
