LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More charges are being brought against a Louisville man accused of raping and robbing three women at gunpoint.

Jimmy Jackson III, 21, is charged with one more count of rape, robbery and sodomy, according to an official police report. The new charges were filed on Tuesday.

According to police, Jackson and the victim met on a website called Backpage. Authorities say two agreed to meet at her residence.

Investigators say on Sept. 6, Jackson and another unknown male arrived at the victim's home. Once inside the home, police say the pair "held the victim at gunpoint, pointing the red laser from the gun at the victim."

Police say the victim was then forced to perform oral sex on both Jackson and the other male. Police also say the victim stated that both men raped her.

Officials say Jackson also "stole the victim's purse, cell phone and $150 at gunpoint."

Jackson was arrested on Sept. 14. He was previously charged with several counts of rape, sodomy, robbery, kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment. 

He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $100,000 full cash bond.
