Since April 6, two more women have come forward claiming they endured "emotional, sexual and physical abuse, as well as false imprisonment and kidnapping," at the hands of Dejon "Danger" Miller, a personal trainer who used websites to recruit clients.Authorities say they have received reports that Miller has harassed them

Miller, 35, was arrested on March 28 following an investigation of a December 2011 incident that left a woman suffering from what the Los Angeles Police Department say were "severe facial bruising and lacerations."

While Miller is currently in custody and being held on $1,301,000 bail, detectives with the LAPD's North Hollywood division are urging any additional victims to come forward.

"As a trainer, I like to keep things professional, realistic and a lil' funky at the same time - which you'll notice by my tattoos, many body piercings!" Miller says of himself in his bio. Over on MySpace, Miller's screen name is "Dejon - DANGER - Miller."

The LAPD believe Miller used several websites to advertise his personal training service to female trainees and fitness models, but instead turned those clients into victims of what has been described by cops as "extreme emotional, sexual and physical abuse caused by Miller."

Anyone who may have been victimized by Miller, or who has information about the suspect and the alleged crimes is urged to contact the LAPD.
