GARDEN CITY, MI (AP) -

Authorities say a 32-year-old man suspected in roughly three dozen Detroit-area sexual assaults and home invasions faces new charges.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office said Ikeie R. Smith of Redford Township was charged Tuesday with home invasion and three criminal sexual conduct counts stemming from a July 2015 incident in Allen Park. A second warrant was denied.

Prosecutors are reviewing two warrants from Dearborn Heights.

Smith was jailed without bond after court hearings Friday in Garden City and Redford Township on charges of home invasion and sex crimes involving three women between 2014 and this year.

Smith has asked for a court-appointed lawyer and faces probable cause hearings next week.

Dearborn police say three cases have been confirmed in that city. State police say DNA evidence was recovered in seven cases.
