King County prosecutors claim Sir Stephen-Daniel Hunt was naked on Aug. 16 when he forced his way into one woman's North Seattle apartment and sexually assaulted her.
Hunt has also been charged with attempting to rape another woman on Aug. 14, and is accused in a sexually motivated assault alleged to have occurred on Aug. 15. He is currently jailed on $500,000 bail.
Seattle police began investigating Hunt following the most recent sexual assault at the North Seattle apartment complex, Detective Donna Stangeland said in court documents.
According to charging documents, Hunt went to the apartment of an acquaintance and asked the woman to have sex with him. She rebuffed his advance, and he left.
Minutes later, though, Hunt - now nude - returned to her door and forced his way back inside, Stangeland told the court. Hunt then repeatedly sexually assaulted her, the detective continued, choking her and attempting to smother her with a pillow in the process.
Noting that the woman's injuries were obvious to investigators, Stangeland said Hunt was arrested at his apartment, located in the 100 block of Northeast 112th Street.
Questioned by investigators, Hunt contended he and the woman had consensual sex and offered up an elaborate story in which he and the woman were in a relationship, the detective told the court. The woman - whose name Hunt did not know - denied his claims.
The attack is alleged to have occurred hours after Hunt was released from King County Jail, where he was being held following his arrest in another purported sexually motivated assault.
In that case, Seattle police were told Hunt attacked a woman while she and her boyfriend were visiting his apartment. Hunt is alleged to have pulled the woman to the ground and attempted to strip her before her boyfriend stopped him.
"She believes Hunt would have raped her, had her boyfriend not been present," Stangeland told the court.
Stangeland also contacted another young woman who said Hunt sexually assaulted her in recent days.
According to charging documents, the woman said she and several others were staying at Hunt's home on Aug. 14 when she awoke to find Hunt on top of her attempting to remove her pants. The woman said Hunt's genitals were exposed at the time.
The woman screamed and fought with Hunt, and was able to hold him off until another guest came to her assistance, Stangeland told the court. She then fled from the apartment.
Stangeland noted the young woman did not initially report the attack because Hunt apologized and claimed he was high at the time.
Hunt has been charged with first-degree rape, attempted second-degree rape and first-degree burglary. He has not yet entered a plea to the charges.
