Two more women have accused a San Bernardino police officer, already charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting 11 other victims while on duty, of assaulting them, officials said Friday.
Arraignment for Officer Ronald VanRossum on more than two dozen felony counts, including rape and kidnapping, was postponed Friday until June 17 to give his attorney more time to review the evidence.
VanRossum, 37, alternately described as a rogue officer and a Little League father, has been in custody on $2-million bond since his arrest March 28. He did not appear in court Friday.
His attorney, William Hadden, could not be reached for comment Friday, but said earlier that his client is not guilty.
But authorities say the officer, a 14-year veteran of the department, targeted low-income women, some of them prostitutes and drug addicts, between April 2000 and November 2001 while working night patrol.
