LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — The Lincoln Police Department says 30-year-old Aric A. Nicholas was arrested for first-degree sexual assault after multiple women reported him for threatening to release videos or photos of them in compromising sexual positions without consent. They are currently looking for other victims.

The victims told police that they met him online and that he threatened release of the materials if they "didn’t give him sexual favors or valuable items."

Police say Nicholas has two previous sexual assault arrests in other states and was already on probation for a 2017 arrest in Colorado for sexual assault.

Victims say he was using the alias "Darelle Taylor."

Police are trying to identify other possible victims discovered in videos and are asking anyone with information to call the Lincoln Police Department at 402-441-6000.
