FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Fayetteville police said a man is now facing additional charges in connection to a string of sexual assaults.
On Tueday, officers said their cold case sexual assault unit obtained additional charges on 38-year-old Christopher James McMillan.
McMillian was originally arrested Dec. 14 after being accused of a series of rapes and kidnappings that happened in 2007.
The additional charges stem from a series of rapes and kidnappings that happened between 2010 and 2012, police said.
Detectives said McMillan would offer his victims rides, then take them to a secluded location and sexually assault them.
“The initial investigation in 2010 and 2012 went unsolved due to limitations in DNA technology,” the police department said in a release.
The sexual assault kits from the cases were recently submitted for testing and McMillan was identified as a suspect, police said.
On Nov. 7, detectives originally charged McMillian with:
- Three counts of first-degree rape
- Two counts of first-degree kidnapping
- First-degree sexual offense
- Communication of threats
As of Tuesday, he is additionally charged with:
- First- and second-degree rape
- First- and second-degree kidnapping
- Two counts of first-degree sexual offense
- Communications of threats
As a result of the additional charges, officers said McMillan remains in the Cumberland County Jail under a $800,000 bond.
Prior to the new charges, his bond was $200,000.
