A man linked to a pair of sexual assaults in Philadelphia will stand trial in an attack on three college students in rural north-central Pennsylvania. Twenty-three-year-old Domenique Wilson pleaded not guilty during a preliminary hearing Thursday.

Police say Wilson entered a Lock Haven apartment on Feb. 1, threatened three female Lock Haven University students with a knife, and held them captive for hours, raping two of them. Investigators say Wilson also stole their cell phones and debit cards, and withdrew money from their bank accounts.

Police say Wilson is also linked to two rapes near the University of Pennsylvania where the victims were terrorized for hours, and Wilson faces escape charges after trying break out of the Clinton County Jail on Feb. 20.
