The arrest resulted from a report of six statutory rape earlier this year, WAFF-TV reported.
George said that he was aware of other incidents that took place on campus after the Jacksonville Police department asked him to investigate one of the complaints.
The attacks are said to have occurred in the rooms and a car park. The authorities are not looking to be a serial rapist, and the students were not in danger, said George.
