A U.S. government employee of 23 years was arrested in Mexico City and accused of assaulting at least 22 victims, The Daily Beast reported on Tuesday.

Brian Jeffery Raymond, who worked out of the U.S. Embassy, is referred to in court documents from this month as an "experienced sexual predator." He was arrested by Mexico City police on May 31 after they responded to reports of a “naked, hysterical woman desperately screaming for help” from the balcony of his apartment, according to The Daily Beast.

The woman told police at the time that she met Raymond on Tinder and she blacked out after drinking a glass of wine he gave her. She reportedly suffered multiple injuries and was sexually assaulted, according to a medical evaluation detailed in court papers.

Raymond told investigators that the encounter was consensual.

He has not yet been charged in connection to the May incident. Authorities are still investigating the situation along with 21 others that were evidenced through photos and videos found on Raymond's phone, according to The Daily Beast.

A total of 25 video segments of naked, unconscious women were discovered through a forensic analysis of the phone, and hundreds of photos were found on his iCloud account, the court documents reportedly revealed.

Earlier this month, Raymond was arrested and charged with one count of coercion and enticement.

Judge Linda Lopez issued an order on Oct. 19 to have him held in jail until his trial, calling him a "danger to the community."
