A man who was arrested for sexual battery and robbery may be a serial rapist with other unreported crimes, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

Shonney Booth, 29, allegedly preys on women he finds in the streets, who may not report the crimes, said the sheriff's office.

"He was very violent with all of the victims, and we suspect he may be involved in other unreported crimes, so we’re looking for other victims to come forward if they recognize the suspect," said Sgt. Aimee Alexander with the BSO's Special Victims Unit, who investigated the case.

Booth was being held in Broward County jail without bond Thursday. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.

When confronted, Booth told authorities that he routinely picked up women he believed were prostitutes.

In February, Booth was arrested for three separate crimes, all related to rape and robbery, the BSO said.

"In most circumstances the suspect would either offer a ride to the victim or ask them to engage in sexual contact with them," Alexander said. "He would offer them money in exchange for sex and then turn violent later."
