LAS VEGAS -- A man already under arrest for posing as a vice officer and sexually assaulting a woman is facing new charges after a second victim came forward, Metro Police announced Wednesday.

Police arrested 48-year-old Mark Picozzi last week on charges of sexual assault, impersonating a police officer, oppression under color of office and false information to a police officer.

Detectives say he called an escort service last week, and when the escort came to his room at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, he told her he was a vice cop and that he would arrest her unless she had sex with him.

The woman was later arrested on outstanding warrants. While in custody, she told police what happened, and Picozzi was arrested.

Police had asked for more victims to come forward and another has. According to police, Picozzi is now facing additional charges including, sexual assault, robbery and first degree kidnapping.

Police did not release details of the second case. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Metro's Sexual Assault Section at (702) 828-3421, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
