The St. Louis County Prosecutor's Office issued warrants yesterday against Dennis Jones, charging the 24-year-old Wellston man with sexually assaulting a male and female friend back in December.

According to St. Louis County police, the couple was walking down the MetroLink tracks in Wellston around 11 p.m. December 2 when Jones and two other men approached the pair and announced a robbery. Police say that after taking personal items from the couple, Jones, allegedly armed with a gun, demanded that the victims have sex with each other and then raped the female at gunpoint and attempted sodomy on the female victim.

Jones, of the 1500 block of Valle, is being held on a $75,000 cash only bond.
