Man accused of raping 3 women at gunpoint faces arraignment

A 22-year-old man accused of raping three women at gunpoint will be arraigned Thursday in Clark County District Court, records show.

According to Las Vegas Justice Court records, defendant Thurman Jackson waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Jackson is being held at the Clark County Detention Center on multiple counts each of sexual assault, kidnapping and battery.

Las Vegas police detectives linked Jackson to three separate assaults in west Las Vegas with nearly identical details, according to an arrest report. The assaults occurred June 18, 20 and 21.

Two of the women told police he offered them a ride, while the third admitted she agreed to have sex with Jackson for money, according to the arrest report.

According to police, Jackson drove the women around briefly before brandishing a handgun and ordering them to undress and get in the back seat. Police said Jackson then sexually assaulted the women in the car.

The women told police Jackson ordered them to get out of the car and get into the trunk, but then drove away, leaving them naked on the street.
