Police say since McGee's image was released to the public, more women have come forward with allegations.

"We've had a couple of folks reach out ot us who had past interactions with McGee and or similar situations," said Captain Hildon Sessums.

Sessums wouldn't go into more details about the case but says the case has widened since his arrest.

McGee is currently out on a $20,000 bond.

Many women on the Ole Miss campus are aware of the arrest and are cautious.

"It definitely concerns me, and I think it concerns other students as well, especially walking back from the library late a night, Mikayla Johnson added. "I think everybody has put their guard up and are just being more aware of their surroundings."

The case will be presented to a grand jury next month.
