Spc. Menkaura Moss, 21, is is being held by military police in connection with attacks on three women, officials said.

Moss has been charged with two counts each of second-degree rape and second-degree sex offense, three counts each of first-degree burglary and felony larceny, four counts of credit card fraud and one count of attempted second-degree rape, said Spring Lake Police Chief A.C. Brown.

The attacks took place in December, January and February at the Southwinds Apartment complex in Spring Lake, where Moss lived, officials said. According to investigators, Moss broke into the women's apartments and attacked them.

The three women's purses were stolen during the attacks, and a debit card inside one of the purses was used to make unauthorized purchases, investigators said.
