Police have requested an arrest warrant for singer Ko Young Wook for the second time this month.

The Seodaemun Police Agency put the new warrant out on January 8 in Seoul.

Officials at the police office first put a request out on January 3, after Ko was accused of child molestation. However, after several hours of questioning at the station, prosecutors called for the case to be merged with the 36-year-old's 2012 allegations of raping a minor.

The former Roo'Ra star is currently being charged with molesting a middle school student, who he allegedly attacked walking home on January 1. He denied the claims when questioned.

Last year Ko was accused of raping three girls on different occasions. The first, an 18 year old (considered a minor in South Korea), claimed Ko had promised to make her famous, before getting her drunk and forcing her to have sex. He denied the allegations, explaining that the sex was consensual.

The case continues.
