A suspected rapist in custody was charged Tuesday in a separate rape case involving an 11-year-old girl.

Redondo Beach resident Corey Delaine Stewart was arrested on February 27 for a September 2012 Gardena rape. He was identified by his alleged victim, and his DNA matched evidence left at the scene of that crime.

Tuesday's additional charges were filed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office after another victim came forward when she saw news reports about Stewart. Stewart allegedly met the girl in 2005 when she was 11 years old and raped her.

Gardena Police detectives working the case believe Stewart is a sexual predator who likely attacked additional women over the past eight years. If you have information related to the case, contact Detective Michael Ross at (310) 217-9635.
