FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV) – A Ferguson man is accused of forcing two women at gunpoint to have sex with him on back-to-back nights.

Gregory Hazlett, 46, was charged Tuesday with two counts each of forcible rape, attempted forcible sodomy and kidnapping, forcibly sodomy by displaying a weapon and one count of armed criminal action.

According to police, Hazlett had a handgun when he kept a woman from leaving his home in the 1500 block of Somerset Terrace Drive on September 14. Police said he then forced the woman to have sex with him.

The next night, police said Hazlett would not let a second woman leave his house and threatened to kill her if she would not have sex with him.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said Hazlett would coax victims to his residence by treating the victims with kindness. Police said in one of the cases, Hazlett met the victim while she was walking on the sidewalk after an argument with her boyfriend.

Jackson said he believes there could be more victims.

Hazlett is currently being held in the St. Louis County jail on a $250,000 cash-only bond.
