An Oregon man who goes by many names allegedly held a woman captive in a makeshift cinderblock cell before she miraculously escaped after being repeatedly sexually assaulted, the FBI says. Now, law enforcement are looking for additional victims across the country.

Negasi Zuberi, 29, is currently in federal custody on one count of interstate kidnapping, the FBI announced in a Wednesday press release. Authorities say the defendant has gone by several different aliases –including: “Sakima,” “Justin Hyche,” and “Justin Kouassi” – and he has lived in at least 10 states over the last 10 years.

A Washington State woman recently led investigators to her former cell – at a house in Klamath Falls, Oregon, near the California border, resulting in the defendant’s eventual arrest. But while she may be the last alleged victim, authorities don’t believe she’s the first by any stretch.
