Police say videos show man drugged, sexually assaulted women while they were unconscious


SANTA FE, New Mexico — A Santa Fe man, who was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon last week, is facing new charges after police found that he may have drugged women and had sex with them while they were unconscious.

Forty-four-year-old Michael Collins was charged Thursday with two counts of rape and voyeurism, and a count each of kidnapping, interfering with communication and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Collins was arrested Aug. 6 for pointing a gun at his girlfriend during a domestic dispute. Police obtained a search warrant and say they found videos that allegedly showed Collins sexually assaulting women who appeared to have been unconscious.

Investigators are trying to identify the women in the videos. Lt. Andrea Dobyns says there are at least three victims.
