A French journalist whom prosecutors accused of preying on sophisticated women was charged Wednesday with various sexual crimes, including rape and forcing a woman to give him oral sex.
In all, the charges claim that the man, Hugues-Denver Akassy, committed sexual crimes against five women.
The indictment came as a result of an investigation started by the Manhattan district attorney’s office after Mr. Akassy, 42, was first arrested in July on charges of raping a Russian tourist in Riverside Park. Prosecutors issued a press release asking for other women who have had contact with him to come forward. A prosecutor said in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Wednesday that about 40 women had contacted the district attorney about Mr. Akassy.
