LA MESA, Calif. (February 19, 2013)—Sean Banks, 37, of Del Mar, Calif., has been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman he met on a Christian dating website.
La Mesa police Lt. Matt Nicholass said Banks was taken into custody Monday and booked for investigation of rape and residential burglary, accused of assaulting a woman in her La Mesa home in October.

Investigators believe that Banks may have assaulted other women he met through the website and other dating sites, where he may have used false names.
