LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A suspected serial rapist jailed for five sexual assaults has been charged with raping a sixth young woman.

Trevor Bradley Wimer, 21, of Gordonville, was charged Thursday in the rape of an 18-year-old woman he met on the Internet, Northern Lancaster County Regional police said in a news release.

The woman told investigators she agreed to meet Wimer in November 2013 and the two went shopping at some local stores. She said when Wimer drove her home, he followed her inside the house and sexually assaulted her, police said.

Northern Lancaster County Regional police charged Wimer last month in the rape of an 18-year-old Mechanicsburg woman at a Warwick Township home. Authorities said the woman also is among the victims he met online.

East Lampeter Township police allege Wimer either raped or sexually assaulted three teenage women at his home.

According to charging documents filed last week, he repeatedly sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman from January 31 to February 1 and attempted to rape an 18-year-old woman in December.

On April 9, East Lampeter police charged him with attempted rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and indecent assault in connection to a February incident reported by a 15-year-old girl.

Wimer initially was arrested in March for the October 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl on the grounds of Conestoga Valley Middle School. Police said the assault occurred during non-school hours and no school events were taking place at the time.

He is jailed in Lancaster County Prison pending a preliminary hearing that is scheduled May 13.
