According to authorities, six women have accused Jeffrey Krigel, 34, of sexual assaults starting in 2005.

Tulsa Police Department Lt. Darren Rick told KTUL that several of the assaults occurred when the victims were unconscious and Krigel was actually in a relationship with some of the women.

Rick added all of the women were adults when the sexual assaults happened.

Even though there have been multiple allegations against Krigel, he only faces one count of first-degree rape.

A woman was in a relationship with Krigel, but he kept pushing the boundaries and forced her to perform sexual acts and performed sexual acts on her without her consent, police said.

According to authorities, the victim said she woke up at times to find Krigel having sex with her. Other times he would tell her they had had sex and she did not remember it.

Police said Krigel gave the woman a glass of water while they talked on his porch on April 29.

The woman does not remember anything from the time she drank the water until she woke up around 2:30 a.m. the next morning, authorities said.

The victim filed a report with the Tulsa Police Department and officers took saved messages from their cell phone computer conversations, police said.

The text messages showed Krigel and the victim broke up in February when he asked her to write a statement saying he never raped her, court records stated and KTUL reported.

Rick told the TV channel police are also working with Dallas police while investigating the earliest of the allegations against Krigel, as he allegedly raped a woman while she was asleep in Dallas, Texas, in 2005.

Krigel’s case is being treated as a serial rape case and Rick encourages anyone who may have been a victim to contact the Tulsa Police Department.

Krigel is currently in the Tulsa County jail and being held on $200,000 bond, police said.
