ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The trial of an Albany man charged with impersonating a police officer and raping seven prostitutes or street people got underway Tuesday with jury selection.

28-year old Phillip Conner is charged with more than 50 counts of rape, aggravated assault with both guns and knives,

kidnapping, false imprisonment, and impersonating a police officer.

March 18, 2009 the SWAT team and District Attorney investigators stormed Conner's home on South Street and arrested him.

Prosecutors say from June 2008 until his arrest, Conner approached prostitutes saying he was a narcotics officer, and took them to wooded areas, pulled a gun or knife, and raped them.
