A Philadelphia man charged with one rape is now facing charges in a similar case.

Thirty-two-year old Jason Johnson was initially arrested for the January 3rd attack of a Kensington teen.

The 16-year-old girl was walking to Gratz High School when she was abducted at gunpoint. She escaped after being terrorized for hours.

A 14-year-old girl from the same area saw Johnson's picture on the news and identified him as her attacker. She was abducted while walking to school in January 2007.

Police noted that the sketch from that case bears a close resemblance to Johnson.
