New DNA evidence has emerged in multiple rape investigations, and all of the cases point at one man, police say.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A man arrested last month and charged with three sexual assaults so far is believed to have more victims, according to Houston police.

Uffot Williams is accused of three sexual assaults that took place between October 2021 and January 2022.

According to investigators, all three victims say they met Williams online and then met up with him at bars on Richmond and Westheimer. They all told police that Williams gave them drinks, and they don't remember anything after that.

The victims are all African American women between the ages of 25 and 30.

"Meeting online, taking them out to the same location, and then them waking up naked, and he's nowhere to be found. That's pretty common, and we believe he may have done this to other people within the community," Ramona Chapa, an investigator with the Houston Police Department's Special Victims Adult Sex Crimes Division, said.

Authorities say Williams would often go to The Locker Room sports bar on Ennis Street and Uptown Lounge on Richmond Avenue.

Williams was arrested on May 15 and booked into the Harris County Jail, but if you have had any interactions with him, you are urged to contact police.
