A Scott man was arrested today after two women told police that they inexplicably blacked out while in his company and awoke to find him raping them.

Aaron Duran, 36, was arraigned this afternoon before District Judge Gary M. Zyra on four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

One 19-year-old woman told police that Mr. Duran picked her and herroommate from their apartment in Moon one night last September andbrought them to Whim, a night club in Station Square.

The woman said she drank what she thought were four Sprites with no alcohol. She awoke the following morning naked and in Mr. Duran's bed with him raping her, according to a criminal complaint.

Another woman came forward in late February after she saw heard about the 19-year-old's report through Facebook.

The second woman said she went out with a co-worker one night in June of 2011 to Rivers Casino, where she had two glasses of wine. The two then went to Club Erotica in McKees Rocks, where she ran into Mr. Duran, who she attended high school with.

She said Mr. Duran ordered her a mixed drink. Within 20 minutes, according to the complaint, she started blacking out.

She then recalled that Mr. Duran walked her to her car, put her in the passenger's seat and drove her to his apartment. She awoke the next morning to find Mr. Duran raping her, but then blacked out again, according to the complaint.

District Judge Zyra set a $100,000 straight bond for Mr. Duran.
