Albany -- Forty-one- year-old Calvin Davis of Albany was initially charged with raping seven women. Because some of the victims are drug addicts or homeless, and can't be located, 14 of the counts against Davis were severed Friday morning.

So Davis will tried for kidnapping and raping four women in a 15 day period in June and July, 2002.

Investigators say two were taken to railroad cars parked near South Washington Street and raped.

Dougherty Chief Assistant D.A. Greg Edwards said "Some of the victims would fit that category, but some really were not involved in any kind of drug activity or actually at home. One was actually at home when she was approached by the defendant."

Davis' attorney, Leisa Terry, said the witnesses in the case are not credible. Jury selection started Monday afternoon. The trial is expected to last three days.
