Redding man charged with raping two teens
REDDING, Calif. -

A Redding man has been arrested on charges he raped two teenagers in September.

Police say Jacob Scott Lake, 19, was named as the suspect in two separate sexual assaults that occurred in September involving 15- and 18-year-old victims.

On Monday, Lake was arrested and interviewed, at which point he confessed to raping both victims, according to investigators.

Prior to the arrest, police say Lake was out on bail for a third sexual assault which was scheduled for trial next week.

He was booked into the Shasta County Jail on two counts of rape, oral copulation with a minor, and committing a felony while out on bail.

Police are asking anyone who may know anything about sexual assaults involving Lake to give them a call at (530) 225-4214.
