Deputies arrested a man Tuesday in Polk County accused of raping a woman twice in the Celebration and Kissimmee areas Aug. 16.
According to a friend of the victim, the woman became missing around 11 p.m. after leaving her residence with three men to perform landscaping and window repair work in the Celebration area.
After the missing person report was filed, the victim returned home and said she was raped by 52-year-old Benjamin Giles, according to a news release.
Sheriff Deputies said Giles took the victim along with three other individuals to the Blake Boulevard area in Celebration then dropped off everyone but the victim, who he told to stay in the vehicle.
The victim told deputies that Giles drove her to an area in Celebration and raped her, then drove around Kissimmee and stopped in the McClaren Circle area where he sexually battered the victim again, according to a news release.
Deputies located Giles in Haines City on Friday where he was arrested and booked into the Polk County Jail on four counts of sexual battery. On Tuesday, Giles was extradited to the Osceola County Jail.
