Police say Holton, who was arrested on July 12, contacted his victims from online advertisements and would pose as a customer. He would gain their trust and insist on meeting them in person, authorities say.

According to police, when he met the victims, Holton would produce a handgun, zip-tie the victim, rob them of their valuables and then sexually assault them.

Police say Holton was identified by a victim after Holton reached out to the victim on Instagram days after sexual assaulting her.
