 (KMOV) – Police say a man used Craigslist to trick at least a half dozen Marines into having sex with him in North Carolina.

According to investigators, Patrick Georges convinced the Marines he was a woman online and lured them to his house.

When the Marines entered the home, Georges accused them of trespassing and blackmailed them into engaging in oral sex with him. He threatened to call police if they did not comply.

“We have six victims right now that are willing to go forward,” said Captain Jason Bettis of Jacksonville Police. “There is some embarrassment, or they think they've done something wrong.  But that's the furthest from the truth."

Police do think there could be more victims out there. They are investigating to see if more charges will be filed.
