Suspected serial rapist arrested for sexual assault of Lincoln woman

Authorities arrested a man Friday for reportedly sexually assaulting a 25-year-old Lincoln woman. 

Lincoln police said 30-year-old Aric A. Nicholas was arrested for first-degree sexual assault.

Police said multiple women reported meeting Nicholas through various social media sites while he was using the alias “Darrelle Taylor.” The victims told police Nicholas would get videos of photos of them in various states of undress or in compromising sexual positions without their consent. He then threatened to release the material if they didn’t give him sexual favors or valuable items, police said. 

Police said Nicholas has previously been arrested in Colorado and Washington for sexual assault. Nicholas was out on probation stemming from a 2017 arrest for sex assault in Colorado, police said. 

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Lincoln Police Department at 402-441-6000.
