LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A man accused of trying to rape women at truck stops in two states is back in the Hub City. Donald Hux faces charges of attempted sexual assault for an incident at a local truck stop in March. It took a governor's warrant to bring 34-year-old Hux back to Lubbock. He faces similar charges in Louisiana. Deputies with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office walked Hux into the jail Tuesday night.

A Lubbock grand jury indicted the truck driver from Arkansas who is accused of pulling a knife on a woman in the cab of his semi in the Chisum's parking lot on the Slaton Highway. He also faces an attempted aggravated sexual assault charge from the incident that occurred in March.

"It's quite possible and I want to say possible that this individual could have been involved in other crimes or more serious crimes. Given the mobility of this individual's profession and employment that is something that we are looking at," says Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department who emphasizes this is still an open investigation.

Detectives with the Lubbock Police Department drove to Arkansas to assist the Union County Sheriff's Office with his arrest. The LPD say the entire investigation is proof of how different agencies cooperate. "We are working with other Texas jurisdictions, other state jurisdictions and we may even work with federal jurisdictions on this case," adds Cpt. Stevens.

Across state lines, 540 miles away, deputies in Caddo Parish, LA say Hux is under investigation for allegedly pulling a gun on a woman and raping her in the back of his truck in May. He is charged with aggravated rape. "Simply because we are getting a hold of him prior to Louisiana does not mean we will hold on to him," says Cpt. Stevens.

Hux is behind bars on a $250,000 bond. The warrant out of Louisiana has a $500,000 bond. Authorities there expect Hux will be transported to Caddo Parish where he will be arraigned for the aggravated rape charge.
