A 52-year-old Long Beach man has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman he met at a bar, police said Thursday.

Steven DeSisto is charged with two counts of felony sexual assault, one count of felony drug possession and one misdemeanor count of photographing an unconscious person, the Long Beach Police Department said.

"The suspect transported the intoxicated victim to his residence in the area of Ocean Boulevard and Orange Avenue, where he sexually assaulted her," police officials said in a statement.

After the assault, which allegedly took place in August, the woman fled the home and contacted law enforcement authorities. 

Investigators suspect there may be additional victims, police said. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Stacey Holdredge at (562) 570-5513.
