SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A man accused of pretending to be a police officer to target victims for sexual assaults is now facing serious felony charges.
Investigators say 35-year old Jeffrey Bugai would target recent immigrants from Central America who don’t speak English very well for the assaults.
He’s charged with telling his victims he was a policeman and then taking them to his home, giving them intoxicants, and then forcing them to have sex.
Bugai allegedly told the victims that if they reported his crimes, he would make sure they were deported.
Because of those threats, police say there’s a good chance there are other victims out there who have not come forward.
Bugai is known to hang out in San Francisco’s Mission District as well as Hayward and Oakland.
