Police said Wall, who is known to refer to himself as "John," is accused of luring transient and homeless women to his trailer, then allegedly sexually assaulting them.

Wall was known to frequent areas near West Eighth Avenue and South Quail Street and along West Colfax Boulevard near Wadsworth Boulevard.

Lakewood investigators believe there are at least 10 victims. They also say Wall filmed many of the alleged assaults.
