SANTE FE, N.M. (AP) — A Native American activist accused of raping women has arrived at the Santa Fe County jail after losing a fight against his extradition from Phoenix.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports 41-year-old Redwolf Pope is accused of raping a Seattle-area woman while she was visiting Santa Fe in 2017.

According to a criminal complaint and search warrant affidavit, Pope’s roommates told police that they found videos that appeared to show Pope sexually assaulting unconscious women.

Pope was arrested in Phoenix in July on suspicion of criminal sexual penetration and other crimes.

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Juan Rios said Pope was booked in the local jail Aug. 28.

Pope’s lawyer, Stephen Aarons, has previously said that Pope did not rape the women shown in the videos.
