Matthew Leonard Werner (DOB: 4/18/77), a 45-year-old Las Vegas resident, has been charged with three counts of sexual assault, including rape, against two different women in Los Angeles. The court set bail at $3M.

Werner was arrested on Feb. 28 on allegations of violations of rape dating back to 2015 in the areas of North Hollywood, Mid-City, Hollywood and Woodland Hills, according to the LAPD.

The L.A. District Attorney and the LAPD have reason to believe additional survivors may exist who have yet to report their attacks. There may even be additional victims in Orange County. The defendant is known for using social media to connect with and lure his victims.

Anyone with additional information is encouraged to please contact LAPD Operations West Bureau Special Assault Section at 213-473-0447.

Anonymous tips can be made by calling L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
