(Scroll down for video) A preacher in Maryland, is facing life in prison for beating, robbing and raping women he meet for sex.

According to his Facebook page, Gabriel Omogbo preaches at the Celestial Church of Christ in Riverdale, and is a former student at the Bowie State University.

Omogbo of Hyattsville, was arrested after being accused of beating, robbing and raping prostitutes in hotels around Washington D.C.

Omogbo was charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, assault and reckless endangerment.

Police believe that the 33-year-old man used the website Backpage.com to find female escorts who were willing to meet him in hotel rooms.

In the first two attacks, he was accused of raping and robbing two women he met online. In the third attack, he is accused of threatening a woman with a knife.

He ordered the woman to undress before saying: “You are going to die today.” He then hit her, cut her arms, legs and hands, and stole her iPad, cellphone and $300 cash.

The woman survived and told police that before the preacher fled the hotel room, he offered her a glass of water.

Omogbo was arrested after security cameras in the hotels, showed a man with a description of Omogbo wearing jeans and brown loafers leaving at the time of the attacks.

DNA evidence collected at all crime scenes match Omogbo.
