SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - California prosecutors say an Uber driver living in the country illegally has been charged with raping, assaulting and robbing young women.

San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow said Monday that Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez's alleged victims are between 19 and 22 years old and three were intoxicated when they were assaulted.

The 39-year-old Mexican citizen faces 10 criminal charges including forcible rape and first degree burglary.

It wasn't immediately known if Alarcon-Nunez has an attorney.

Dow says detectives are looking for potential witnesses and trying to determine if there are additional victims in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties northwest of Los Angeles.

Officials say Alarcon-Nunez returned to the U.S. illegally after a voluntary deportation from New Mexico in 2005.
