CLEVELAND — A man accused of sexually assaulting a woman after breaking into her home two weeks ago has been indicted on multiple charges.

According to Cuyahoga Court of Common Pleas records, Dominic Booker, 26, is charged with three counts of rape, one count of kidnapping, one count of aggravated burglary and one count of burglary.

According to authorities, on Sept. 14, Booker climbed through the first-floor window of the woman's house and then assaulted her.

Police said that while the Sept. 14 incident is the only case Booker has been charged with, they are investigating several other incidents where a prowler wearing a black ski mask tried to break into several homes recently and could be connected.

Booker has an arraignment scheduled for Oct. 1.
