KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A man charged in November with the kidnapping, tasering and rape of two women now faces new charges for the attacks of three additional women.

Prosecutors say Michael Cain, 49, used the same method in all the attacks. They claim he offered the women a ride and once inside his car, he displayed his taser gun and threatened them if they didn't comply.

Cain was charged in November with the attacks of two women; one that occurred in October involving a 22-year-old woman and another attack that happened a month later.

The 22-year-old woman told police her attacker picked her up at 22nd and Prospect, covered her eyes with a blindfold and took her to a home on James A. Reed Road where he raped her. She told police he gave her his phone number and dropped her off.

A 19-year-old said her attack was similar. A man picked her up behind a hotel on Linwood and began attacking her. When she tried to fight him off, he tased her in the face and both legs before a woman came to her rescue. That woman was able to give a 911 operator a license plate number, which police said led them to Cain.

Prosecutors filed additional charges against Cain after police say they have evidence he was the kidnapper and rapist in the following attacks:

February 27, 2013- A woman was raped and sodomized after she was kidnapped from the area of 85th and Hickman Mills Drive.

May 24, 2013- A woman in Grandview was sexually assaulted by a man who attempted to kidnap her.

November 2, 2013- A woman says a man held her against her will for a substantial amount of time and raped her.

In all, Cain faces 14 felony charges related to the attacks. Cain has been behind bars since his arrest in November.
