Alameda Police said they believe a San Leandro man facing charges he sexually assaulted or battered four women may now be facing similar charges in a fifth case.

Police Lt. Bill Scott said a woman sitting in an Oakland courthouse gallery where Marc Clarence Stevenson, 43, was making an appearance told authorities there that she believed that Stevenson raped her in October 2009 on the 2400 block of Lexington Avenue at Alameda Point. She told courthouse deputies, who contacted Alameda police.

Scott said police are investigating the case for possible charges. Stevenson has been accused or rape or sexual battery in four other cases, Scott said, including two in Alameda and one in Oakland.
