Another Woman Comes Forward in Christian Mingle Rape Case



    10 Hidden Gems and Crown Jewels That Shine on Harbor Island

    A woman is claiming a Del Mar man accused of raping two women in San Diego County also inappropriately touched her.

    The woman says Sean Banks, who allegedly raped a La Mesa woman after meeting her on the dating website, also met her on the same site .

    She claims he offered to pay for a portion of her airfare and hotel to go to London with him in 2010. While there, she says he danced very close to her and made aggressive movements at a dance club, then touched her in a sexual way in his hotel room.

    "It was pretty uncomfortable," she said. "I'd never been touched like that before."

    The woman is not named as a victim in the lawsuit, which also includes the alleged rape of another woman in 2009 in San Diego County.

    The former U.S. Navy lieutenant was arrested on Feb. 11 after a La Mesa woman told police she had been raped.

    Banks' trial is set for June 9. He faces 44 years to life in prison if convicted of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, sex with a foreign object and burglary.
