REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles-area man faces charges he drugged and raped an acquaintance and then shaved off all of his alleged victim's hair, police said.

A Redondo Beach, Calif., police spokesman said John Marshall, 53, was picked up this month and has been released on bail after being charged with rape using an intoxicating substance.

Marshall was briefly a Redondo Beach reserve police officer in the 1980s and has been named in at least two other complaints alleging he used an apparent date-rape drug on men and boys at his home, the Los Angeles Times reported. He was not charged in the previous reported incidents.

Police Sgt. Phil Keenan said Marshall was arrested after officers searched his home and found evidence confirming the 29-year-old alleged victim's account.
