Michael Pena, the New York City cop charged with raping a woman in Manhattan last week, is now being investigated in connection with other sexual assaults, according to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. "They have picked out some that they think have potential for having been perpetrated by this individual," Kelly said without elaborating. He did confirm that all of the unsolved crimes being investigated occurred in the three years since Pena joined the force. [NYT]
