Clayton police yesterday held a press conference announcing the arrest of a man suspected in a mugging and sexual assault early Labor Day morning and another holdup the day before.

Jeremiah McMillon, 23, is charged with forcible sodomy and attempted robbery and rape in a gunpoint attack that left a 23-year-old female fearing for her life around 12:30 a.m. in the 7400 block of Byron Place in Clayton.

McMillon also stands accused of a robbery the previous night near Washington University in University City. Two students robbed of their wallets and cellphones around 3 a.m. Sunday near Big Bend and Lindell picked McMillon out of a police lineup yesterday.

Now, St. Louis police officials are investigating whether McMillon may have committed similar assaults in the Central West End. Those crimes include...

August 30, 12:02 a.m.: Two females were robbed at gunpoint in the 6000 block of Waterman. The gunmen told the victims to take off their clothes then fled the scene.

September 3, 12:20 a.m.: A female was robbed at gunpoint in the 4900 block of McPherson and forced to perform a sexual act on the suspect. After a brief amount of time, a motion detector came on and the suspect ran.

September 4, 11:35 p.m.: A man approached a woman in the 100 block of Westminster and lifted his shirt to show the butt of a gun that was stuffed in his pants. The female victim was able to flag down a car and the suspect ran.

McMillon is being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond.
