An Alpharetta man is now accused of separately raping two women in his Kennesaw State University dorm room.

Benjamin David Wainscott had been in Cobb County jail nearly two weeks on a rape count when police charged him with a second rape, according to a Nov. 20 warrant.

The alleged incident that brought on this second charge predates the count that originally put Wainscott in jail on Nov. 9.

The warrant from this new charge alleges that Wainscott raped a woman in early July.

A school spokeswoman said neither of the women were students at the time. The spokeswoman also said Wainscott is no longer a student.

Wainscott “confessed via text messages to the victim” that he raped in July, according to a warrant.

In the alleged November rape, a warrant says that Wainscott invited the woman to his room after dinner.

When talking to police about the November incident, Wainscott “confessed that he should have stopped after the first time the victim ordered him to stop, however, continued having sexual intercourse with the victim,” according to the warrant.

He texted her an apology after the rape, says the warrant.

The university said it is not aware of any additional or pending charges against Wainscott, who is being held without bond.
