A 27-year-old Athens man was accused in an indictment of drugging and assaulting four University of Georgia students and one other college-age male.

The indictment against Andre Montez Jones was filed Tuesday in Clarke County Superior Court, according to the Athens Banner-Herald, which reported the alleged assaults occurred between July 2013 and December 2015.

An 18-year-old man came forward after the December 2015 incident, prompting officials to begin their investigation.

Jones, who is being held without bail in the county jail, has been charged with five counts of aggravated sodomy with force, three counts of sexual battery, one count of battery and one count of second-degree criminal damage to property, according to the Banner-Herald.
