A man who victimized at least 3 women is facing charges of sexual assault, kidnapping, and armed robbery, according to Phoenix Police.

Police say Nilson Quijano-Quezada sexually assaulted a female prostitute on March 18, in the area of 2600 West Monroe. There was limited information, so an arrest was not immediately made.

On April 20, he allegedly approached an 18-year-old woman and attempted to force her into his vehicle, in the area of 5900 West McDowell. She fought back, and he choked her until she lost consciousness, then robbed her of her purse and fled the scene, according to police.

The same night, Quijano-Quezada approached a 48-year-old woman walking alone, in the area of 4800 North 59th Avenue. He allegedly told the woman he had a gun and forced her into his vehicle. Police say he sexually assaulted her and made her withdraw cash from her bank account.

Officers located Quijano-Quezada leaving the scene. He has been linked to all three cases and admitted involvement.

"We can say this during his interview with detectives he indicated that he had done this in the past at this point," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos.

More victims may be out there.

Police say Quijano-Quezada drives a black 2001 Lexus IS300, Arizona license plate AFS5201.

TIPLINE: Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6141

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
