(CNN) -- New Orleans police have issued arrest warrants for former NFL star Darren Sharper and another man in connection with the alleged rapes of two women.

Sharper, 38, and Erik Nunez, 26, each face two counts of aggravated rape, the Orleans Parish district attorney's office said in a statement.

Sharper has also been charged in California with two counts of rape by use of drugs, according to Los Angeles County prosecutors.

He pleaded not guilty last week.

Prosecutors there said the five-time Pro Bowl player, who became an NFL Network analyst, is also under investigation in Arizona and Nevada.

Before his NFL career, Sharper played football at both Hermitage High School in Henrico and the College of William and Mary.
