Santa Barbara police are looking for possible additional victims of a man they alleged sexually assaulted two women repeatedly over the course of a year.

Marwan Kamal Momenah, 24, of Santa Barbara was arrested Saturday on multiple counts of sexual assault, according to police Lt. Riley Harwood.

He was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail with bail set at $300,000.

No details were released regarding the victims or the circumstances of the alleged attacks.

“Detectives are attempting to determine if additional victims exist,” Harwood said.

Possible victims, or anyone with knowledge of someone who has been sexually assaulted by Momenah, is asked to contact Detective Megan Harrison at 805.897.2343 or [email protected]

“Due to the ongoing nature of this investigation, additional details are being withheld,” Harwood said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
