A man accused of being a serial rapist who attacked his victims in a “rape dungeon on wheels” was arrested after deputies allegedly caught him in the act, and authorities said they’re searching for more victims.

Eduardo Sarabia was arrested on May 13 and was charged with one count of forcible rape and one count of forcible oral copulation. If convicted as charged, Sarabia faces a maximum sentence of life in state prison.

FOX 11 was the first to report on the crime, after a source said a woman escaped from the so-called “rape dungeon on wheels” in a remote area in the San Gabriel Mountains. It’s believed the suspect would pick up his victims at the El Monte train station, according to the source.

Sarabia is being held on no bail and his arraignment is scheduled for June 27 at the Pomona Courthouse.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies said the two incidents happened on May 12 and May 13. Two deputies said they caught him in the act Monday inside that white van, off of Highway 39 in the Angeles National Forest, north of Azusa. Investigators said Sarabia is a transient and an illegal immigrant from Mexico.

Sources told FOX 11 that the vehicle Sarabia is accused of using to commit these crimes was a “rape dungeon on wheels,” and was “disgustingly outfitted for rape.” The 2015 Ford Transit van has no windows in the back. {snip}
