Man accused of preying on teen girls has been arrested for second time

London police say they have charged a 23-year-old man with rape of a minor after finding him in a hotel room with two teen girls. The same man was charged last year after police say he tried to pick up a 12-year-old girl for sex. Joshua L. Wagers, of London, was arrested Saturday after he took a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old to the Shell Truck Stop on Ky. 80, “where he had a semi-truck waiting, stocked with alcohol,” according to a news release from London police.
