A former college basketball player who authorities say raped, robbed and terrorized several people in two Pennsylvania cities has been held for trial.

Three women testified in Philadelphia on Thursday that 24-year-old Domenique Wilson forced his way into their apartments last year. Two allege they were raped, and prosecutors say DNA from Wilson matches evidence in the attacks.

The women say they were robbed, bound and gagged, and threatened at knife point. Wilson faces rape, robbery and related charges.

Wilson, who once played for the Lock Haven University basketball team, is also awaiting trial in central Pennsylvania. He is accused of raping two Lock Haven students on Feb. 1, and of assaulting a third.
