A Hyde Park man already awaiting trial in two sexual assaults is now charged with a third attack.Thirty-four-year-old John Hopkins was linked to the rape of a woman on the South Side last October with DNA evidence. Charges were filed Wednesday.

The suspect was also recently accused of trying to hire a hit man to bribe or murder two victims in the previous cases so they wouldn't testify against him.
