MIAMI, July 4 (UPI) -- A rape suspect in Miami allegedly attracted some of his victims by posing as a photographer on Craigslist, police said.

The most recent incident occurred June 28, police said. The two victims said they knew Molina-Iglesias through Craigslist, the online classified ad website.

The suspect then fled the scene, police said.

Molina-Iglesias is also accused of raping another 20-year-old after promising her free modeling photos, the police report said.

He allegedly took her to an isolated wooded area and raped her at gunpoint.
