LA MESA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California man has been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman he met on a Christian dating website.

La Mesa police Lt. Matt Nicholass says 37-year-old Sean Banks, of Del Mar, was taken into custody Monday and booked for investigation of rape and residential burglary. He is accused of assaulting a woman in her La Mesa home in October.

Police say the two first met on ChristianMingle.com and that the October assault occurred when they met in person for the first time.

Investigators believe that Banks may have assaulted other women he met through the website and other dating sites, where he may have used false names.
