A 29-year-old Saugus resident was charged with raping two women in Pasadena and threatening them with a box cutter, according to a Los Angeles District Attorney's press release.

Jason Keith Renaux is charged with allegedly raping a 19-year-old woman Dec. 27 after he picked her up on Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena and drove her to the 3800 block of East Foothill Boulevard.

The woman escaped and gave police the suspect's license plate number.

An investigation led police to a second victim, who said she was attacked in a similar way Nov. 28.

Renaux was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at Pasadena Superior Court but no record of the outcome was available at press time.

He is charged with three counts of forcible rape and one count of forcible oral copulation with the special allegation he used a deadly weapon, a box cutter, according to the press release.

He is being held on $1.4 million bail.

If convicted, Renaux faces up to life in prison, the press release stated.

The district attorney's office did not have any record of prior criminal history for Renaux.
