The Fayetteville Police Department said Thursday that a man charged in January in two separate rape cases is now facing additional charges related to a case from 2007.

A third victim recently came forward in connection with the 2007 case, and FPD Detectives initiated an investigation based upon the new information. Larry Dean Hunt, 50, has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and second-degree sex offense in relation to this case that occurred in April 2007.

In January, Hunt was arrested and charged with second-degree rape in an alleged attack on an acquaintance November 9.

During the course of that investigation, detectives got information that led to charging Hunt with first-degree kidnapping and second-degree sexual offense in an unsolved case from 2007 involving a different victim.
