The man police say is responsible for raping a 14-year-old College Station teen at gunpoint last month is now facing new charges for a similar crime.

"Any sexual assault victim may, for a variety of reasons, may be hesitant to come forward maybe out of fear or not understanding what happened," said College Station PD Lt. Chuck Fleeger. 

CSPD feared there were other incidents and sure enough Bryan Police say that's the case.

Three-time convicted sex offender 54-year-old Isaiah Young, who is already behind bars charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child from November, is now facing aggravated kidnapping and improper photography or visual recording charges after Bryan Police say they were able to link Young to an unsolved case from March.

"We had received a report from a 17-year-old male that he had been abducted by gunpoint and that he had been driven to a secluded area where the suspect took photos of his genitalia," said Officer Kelley McKethan. "At that point we had a vague description of the vehicle and the person but nothing to lead us to the identity of a suspect."

All that changed though after Young was arrested.

Knowing there were some similarities in the cases, CSPD investigators reached out to Bryan and the case was re-opened.

"Once Isaiah Young was arrested in College Station we were able to then re-contact the victim, do some follow up steps which led to us getting an arrest warrant," Officer McKethan said. 

Additional charges that will help CSPD and BPD build an even stronger case against Young.

"We can begin to paint a more complete, clear picture [of what happened] which is what we want because we want the truth to be told in the proper venue which is the court of law," said Lt. Fleeger.

Young is being held in the Brazos County Jail on $245,000 bail.
