ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A man is facing charges for allegedly sexually assaulting two women in two different downtown St. Louis parking garages.

Floyd Crawford, 44, is charged with assault and two counts of sexual abuse.  Crawford allegedly followed both women before sexually assaulting them.

Crawford is accused of following a woman into a garage on 7th Street Thursday night near the Edward Jones Dome. The two got on the elevator, police said, before Crawford reached up her coat and grabbed her between the legs.

The next attack happened three hours later at the Kiener Plaza West garage.

“The victim was pushed out of the elevator and at that point the attack occurred outside of the elevator on the pavement of the parking garage,” said Ramona Gau with the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office.

Crawford then allegedly got on top of the victim and began thrusting his body against her before the attack turned more violent.

“She had injuries that were consistent with her face being slammed violently on the pavement,” said Gau.

The companies that operate the garages did not respond to requests for comment. Crawford is being held in the St. Louis City Jail on a $25,000 bail. Police believe there may be other victims and want them to come forward.
