Armed Man Tried to Sexually Assault Spa Employee 

A Florida Man with a firearm reportedly walked into a massage parlor in Lake County last week and tried to use the gun to force an employee to perform sexual acts on him. 

Late in the morning on March 16, a man went to A1 Massage in Eustis, Florida. 

A woman was working by herself, and the man reportedly approached her. He allegedly put the gun to her head and demanded that she pleasure him sexually. The man reportedly told her she would be killed if she tried to call the authorities after he left. 

The woman did not give in to his alleged sexual demands.  

It was reported that the suspect left through the back door and drove away. 

The authorities were notified, and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office set out to find the suspect. They employed a police helicopter to try to find him. 

They were able to track down the car to the home of the suspect’s mother, and the woman reportedly assisted the police in finding her son. She told the officers that he told her he “did something that he shouldn’t have done” before going into the wooded area nearby. 

When they found him, the police reported that the man resisted until their K-9 officer bit him.  

The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Lake County Jail. He was charged with attempted sexual battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony, and resisting an officer without violence. 

He was held on a $76,000 bond. 

The police reported that they located a BB gun near the scene, but they did not find a real firearm.
