PHOENIX -- A Valley man has denied allegations that he sexually assaulted two women he met online.

Lee Charles Lubonne, 44, was in court Thursday where he entered a not guilty plea to charges of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and kidnapping.

The Litchfield Park resident, who was arrested last month, allegedly used sites like Craigslist to meet the victims.

One woman claimed she went to Lubonne's house after he posted an ad on Craigslist stating that he wanted to hire a photographer.

The woman said she was drugged and assaulted before eventually being released from Lubonne’s home.

The woman was able to take authorities back to Lubonne’s residence, where they found recording devices, hard drives, prescription pills, and women’s belongings.

Investigators also linked Lubonne to the rape of a 15-year-old girl back in March. Lubonne reportedly met the girl after she posted an ad offering her babysitting services.

Lubonne is due back in court on July 20 for an initial pretrial conference.
