Two new charges have been filed against an Oklahoma City police officer accused of sexually assaulting 13 women while on patrol.

The new charges were filed Tuesday following testimony during a preliminary hearing for 27-year-old Daniel Holtzclaw, who was arrested in August and already faced 34 charges including rape, sexual battery and stalking.

Prosecutors added two charges of procuring lewd exhibition after a 44-year-old woman testified Holtzclaw forced her to raise her shirt and drop her pants to expose herself on May 8.

Holtzclaw has pleaded not guilty to all but the newest charges and two counts of sexual battery filed following testimony on Monday.

None of the other women who testified reported the incidents to police until detectives contacted them after opening a criminal investigation.
