A Norwich man who has denied 14 charges, including six rapes - alleged to have happened on a single day - will now also face two further allegations.
Jake Killick, 23, is to stand trial at Norwich Crown Court in January after pleading not guilty to a series of offences in Norwich on March 30 this year.
They include three counts of robbery, two of sexual assault, one of assault by penetration, one of false imprisonment and one of committing an offence with intent to commit a sexual offence, namely the alleged false imprisonment.
But Killick, currently of Belmarsh Prison, will now face two further allegations, including one rape, relating to a different alleged victim on January 5 this year.
It comes after Judge Stephen Holt granted an application by the prosecution to join both sets of allegations at a hearing on November 10.
It means Killick will now face a total of 16 counts at his trial which is due to start on January 2 2018.
