Police are looking for other victims after arresting a man they say sexually assaulted his victim in a vacant home in the area of Lilley and Warren in Canton.

According to Police, the man met his victim moments before, offering her a job to clean homes.

Special Services Lt. Craig Wilsher of Canton Police said, "Very good investigative work by my detectives."

Ali Mohamad-Sahrif Al-Aboosi, 45, has been charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Police said he picked up his victim near Telegraph and Ford Road April 12.

The woman told police, Al-Aboosi took her to a home being remodeled in Canton where he assaulted her.

He could be facing up to 12 years in prison if convicted.

Police don't believe Al-Aboosi has a previous criminal record but they are investigating to see if he has done this before.

Authorities are now looking for other victims.

"If there is anyone else with similar situations give the police a call and just trust your gut if you don't feel right don't get in the car."

Al-Aboosi has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He will be back in court for April 29.
