ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-area man is accused of sexually torturing five women in his apartment over several years.
 
Authorities on Tuesday announced that 29-year-old Adam Michael Capriglione of south St. Louis County is facing 19 felony charges that include forcible rape, forcible sodomy, felonious restraint and domestic assault.
Capriglione is jailed on $500,000 bond.
 
Police spokesman Brian Schellman says an investigation began after one of the victims contacted police in January. Capriglione is accused of raping, sodomizing and torturing five women dating back to 2006.
Capriglione also faces one count of sexual exploitation of a minor for allegedly filming a child having sex in 2007.
 A phone message left with Capriglione's attorney, Joseph Green, was not immediately returned.
 
The crimes occurred at Capriglione's apartment and allegedly involved five victims. According to court records, most of the victims began as girlfriends. Some lived with Capriglione. One woman was allegedly choked until she fell unconscious. That same victim was allegedly burned with heated scissors, cut, and beaten with a rubber mallet.
 
Police suspect there may be other victims and urge them to come forward.
