Actor accused of two date rapes may have other victims, police say

User5000-1328207297-media1_f4e5c3_163_240_PrsMe_Los Angeles police are looking for women who may have been sexually assaulted by an aspiring actor who frequented Hollywood night spots.

Police said Thursday they arrested Robert Aaron Stephens on suspicion of assaulting at least two women at his home after taking them on dates in the Hollywood area.

Police said Stephens, who is in his early 30s, is suspected of getting women intoxicated and then taking advantage of them, with two incidents occurring between May 2009 and October 2010.

Police want to know if there are additional victims.

Stephens, 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, who goes by the name Aaron Stephens, has appeared in mostly small and uncredited roles on television.

According to his IMDB page, he served as the "physique" of Beowulf in the film of that name directed by Robert Zemeckis.
