An alleged would-be rapist who reportedly had his tongue bitten off during an attack last month in North Charleston, South Carolina, is facing new charges, PEOPLE has learned.

Antoine Miller, 16, was already facing individual burglary, weapons possession, kidnapping, assault, and criminal sexual conduct charges stemming from his failed attack on a 33-year-old woman in October.

But since then, investigators confirm to PEOPLE that Miller has been accused in another attempted sexual assault that allegedly took place on Sept. 27.

The criminal complaint against Miller states that he was charged last week with a new count of attempted sexual assault. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

According to Miller’s arrest report, police responded to a Chinese restaurant in North Charleston and found a woman with visible scratches on both of her arms. The restaurant’s employees told officers the woman started banging on the door, yelling for them to call the police.

“When I opened the door, the victim grabbed me and hugged me as she was crying,” the responding officer wrote in the report.

The victim told police that a man followed her for several blocks before dragging her into some bushes. He then allegedly got on top of her, and she screamed. The report states Miller immediately fled afterwards.

During the Oct. 16 incident, Miller allegedly attacked a woman and “shoved his tongue down in her mouth,” his arrest report reads. The woman said “she ‘bit his tongue as hard as she could until she heard it snap.’ ”

Her attacker recoiled in pain, “screaming.” The woman told investigators she then ran away from him and hopped in her car, calling police at a nearby gas station.

Miller has not yet entered a plea to any of the charges against him.
