Fayetteville, N.C. — A Fayetteville man who surrendered to police Tuesday in relation to a sexual assault is now facing additional charges in connection of an October incident.
Diondre Kesean Jones, 22, of the 1600 block of Shivley Court, was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree sexual offense, larceny of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen motor vehicle. Police said he sexually assaulted a woman before stealing her vehicle on Monday afternoon.
After hearing about Jones’ arrest, a second victim came forward and said that Jones sexually assaulted her on Oct. 14.
The victim said that she met Jones online and had agreed to meet him at his Shively Court residence, authorities said. She told police that, once inside the home, Jones showed her a gun and an out-of-state police officer’s badge and told her he was part of an undercover sting. The victim told police that Jones forced her into another room, where he sexually assaulted her before allowing her to leave the home.
The victim told police that she did not come forward until she learned Jones was in custody because she feared retaliation.
Jones faces additional charges of first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, assault by pointing a gun, and impersonating a police officers in connection to the Oct. 14 incident.
Jones was being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center, where his bond was increased from $277,000 to $635,000.
