Colorado Springs police say a man accused of threatening a woman at knifepoint is also suspected in sexual assaults on a teenage girl and a woman.

Shawn E.-Lovett was arrested last week after a 26-year-old woman said a man threatened her with a knife and briefly chased her at a bus stop. Police found Lovett at a nearby restaurant and the woman identified him as the attacker.

Police say Lovett is also suspected in the sexual assault of a 17-year-old who said she was attacked by a man armed with a knife at a bus stop on November 17th.

Officers say Lovett is also suspected in an October incident where a 22-year-old woman said she was attacked by a man she offered a ride to. She said he grabbed her by the throat, threatened to kill her and ordered her to undress. She said he twice tried to sexually assault her before he fled.
