PHOENIX - A Phoenix man has been indicted for allegedly kidnapping and burning four women, and sexually assaulting one of them.

On Friday, a Maricopa County Grand Jury indicted 33-year-old Jonathan Jude Rouzan on 33 counts of kidnapping, sexual assault, and aggravated assault on four women from December 1 to January 3.

Investigators say all four women were burned with either a glass pipe or lighter on their arms, legs, and buttocks. One victim was sexually assaulted multiple times, and all were beaten. 

Rouzan was arrested by Phoenix police on January 4 near 51st and Southern avenues. 

He is being held without bond.
