(KMOV) -- Police have arrested a man after a string of robberies and sexual assaults involving area students.

Jeremiah McMillon, 23, of St. Louis is a suspect in five different incidents, four of those were actual attacks and has been charged in two of them. He's a convicted felon who was on parole for the crimes of stealing and robbery.

Clayton police said McMillon is the man who approached a 23-year old woman very early Monday morning in the 7400 block of Byron, robbed her and sexually assaulted her.

Police say they were able to lift his fingerprint off the victim's car and arrested him around 1 p.m. Tuesday.

McMillon is also charged with robbing two Washington University students early Sunday morning.

St. Louis police are looking hard at him as the person who robbed two women on Watermen Monday of last week, robbed and sexually assaulted a women in the Central West End Friday and approached a woman with a gun Saturday at Skinker and Westminster Friday.

Police said McMillon was on a violent crime spree, but it may have started earlier this year. He was investigated for sexual misconduct, but was never charged.
