The defendant is accused of sexually assaulting one woman in 2011 and the remaining four victims in August and September of this year, prosecutors said.

He was arrested last Thursday by Pasadena detectives with the assistance of the United States Marshals Southwest Pacific Regional Fugitive Unit.

Miller is scheduled to return on Oct. 24 in Department J of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pasadena Branch.

The case remains under investigation by the Pasadena Police Department.
