A former Boston banker was accused of being a serial rapist who held most of his victims with a knife, including 13-year-old and 14-year-old girls, and stabbed three of them, authorities said Tuesday.

Ivan Cheung, 42, was charged with multiple counts of aggravated rape, rape of a child and other crimes that took place from 2003 to 2006, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

Cheung, who has addresses in suburban Boston and Quincy, was detained Tuesday in lieu of a $1 million bail after an appearance in Boston municipal court. NBC Boston reported.

A spokesman for State Street, the Boston-based financial services company, said on Tuesday that Cheung had been fired. A Linkedin profile that appeared to belong to Cheung listed his position at the company as vice president of procurement category strategy.

In the first case, Cheung is accused of arresting a 13-year-old girl in Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood, the prosecutor’s office said.

He is accused of driving her to another location, where he raped her with a knife and stabbed her in the shoulder, the statement said.

Cheung is said to have picked up a 14-year-old girl in the Charles Circle area a week later. He held a knife to her throat before raping and stabbing her twice, prosecutor Ian Polumbaum claimed in court.

Two years later, Cheung picked up a 23-year-old near downtown Boston, the statement said. The prosecutor said he held a knife to her throat before raping and stabbing her repeatedly.

He is also charged with arresting an 18-year-old in the city’s North End neighborhood, holding a knife to her throat and raping her in 2006, the prosecutor’s office said.

Cheung was arrested after authorities launched an attempt in April to re-examine 100 unresolved cases of sexual assault in Boston.

Detectives followed Cheung to a shopping center this year and retrieved his discarded cigarette, Polumbaum said. A male DNA profile obtained from the cigarette matched genetic material taken from assault kits used in the 2005 and 2006 cases, Polumbaum told a judge.

Polumbaum said there were other “common threads” between the four cases, including the type of car the suspect used in the attacks.

Cheung’s lawyer, E. Peter Parker, said in an email on Wednesday that the allegations are “very old.”

“That creates complicated evidence, factual and forensic problems for the prosecution, which we will all aggressively challenge,” he said.

Cheung’s next court appearance is September 22.
