A Laguna Beach rug store manager may face more sex crime charges.

Last week, Eyewitness News reported that Saeid Maralan was accused of assaulting three women in the back room of Sirous & Sons Rug Gallery.

Since the report, six more women have come forward with accusations against Maralan that include sexual assault.

Laguna Beach police said they're investigating the latest allegations, but it's too early to tell if more charges will be filed.
