A Cerritos College football player is facing rape charges stemming from an alleged attack on a 19-year-old woman last year in Norwalk, and sheriff’s investigators said Thursday there may be additional victims.

Kishawn Holmes, 21, pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to two counts of forcible rape stemming from the alleged attack last Sept. 8.

He was arrested Feb. 22 and is being held in lieu of $2 million bail while awaiting a March 16 court appearance in Norwalk. On that day, a judge is expected to set a date for a preliminary hearing that will determine if there is enough evidence to require him to stand trial.

“Holmes was a student and football player for Cerritos College,” according to a sheriff’s statement. “The incident occurred in the city of Norwalk, and did not occur on the college campus. Special Victims Bureau detectives believe there are potentially additional victims related to this investigation.”

Anyone who has any information on the case was urged to call detectives at (877) 710-5273; Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS; or send information via email at
