A man who investigators say tried to rape two women this week is behind bars.

According to the Knox County Sheriff's Office, Michael Robert Reagan, 38, is charged with aggravated rape and attempted aggravated rape.

Investigators say Reagan picked up a woman in Knoxville just after 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday for the purpose of paying for sexual acts. He drove to Archie Weigel Road in East Knox County where he held her at gunpoint and demanded sex. She escaped from a nearby homeowner called 911.

Then just before 2:00 a.m. Thursday morning, KCSO says Reagan offered to give another woman a ride to her home. Instead, he drove to a gravel drive on River Landing Way in East Knox County and threatened her with a knife while attempting to rape her. When she escaped his vehicle, he attempted to run over her. She ran into a nearby wooded area and called 911.

The Knoxville Police Department was given Reagan's vehicle description, and a KPD officer found him Thursday morning on Central Street at Scott Avenue in Knoxville city. Both victims identified Reagan as the suspect.

Reagan is being held on a $1 million bond.  He has a criminal history in Knoxville including assault, simple possession, theft, vandalism, and domestic assault.

KCSO is investigating because the crimes occurred in the county.
