A Bell County Grand Jury indicted a Fort Hood soldier Wednesday on charges he sexually assaulted at least six women in apartment complex laundry rooms in Killeen and Copperas Cove.

Bradric Givante Dwarren Fransaw, 23, was indicted four times on six counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault with a deadly weapon and one count of second-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $1,600,000.

The indictments stem from charges related to assaults occurring in June, July and over the weekend of Aug. 21 and 22. Alleged victim's ages range from 20 to 30, records show. In every case, Fransaw either assaulted or attempted to assault a woman in an apartment complex laundry room while wielding a handgun.

The Killeen Police Department arrested Fransaw Aug. 22 after he attempted to assault a woman in the laundry room of a complex in the 2200 block of Andover Drive. The woman in that incident was able to flee the laundry room and spotted Fransaw as he left the apartment complex in his black Chevrolet Camaro, according to an arrest report.

About 30 minutes later, police spotted the Camaro in a parking lot in the 4200 block of Old Farm-to-Market 440. After a brief foot chase in a field, police apprehended Fransaw.

He later admitted to sexually assaulting two women and was identified by one of the alleged victims.

Though he was indicted on charges he assaulted six women, police detectives have linked him to nine sexual assaults, all occurring in the past three months. In each incident, a woman was cornered by an armed man in an apartment complex laundry room.

Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza could not say whether Fransaw would be indicted for further accusations.

"If there's any additional (charges) that go forward, we will determine at that time what is in the best interest of the prosecution and the victim," Garza said.

According to information from Fort Hood, Fransaw is assigned to Charlie Company, Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.
