LA MESA, Calif. (AP) - A San Diego County man has been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman he met on ChristianMingle.com, and police are looking into whether he may have victimized other women he met on the 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 said it was the first time the two met in person after carrying on conversations over the Internet.

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