The Collier County Sheriff’s Office say they have their man in a string of sexual batteries in Golden Gate over the last year.
“We have a suspect in custody on unrelated charges and we are currently working on evidence to charge him with the sexual batteries in Golden Gate,” Special Crimes Bureau Lt. Jason Wrobleski said in a news release.
Deputies are trying to connect the man to three sexual battery cases, the most recent of which happened on July 23. Detectives say the suspect attacked the victim while they slept, breaking into the home in the early morning hours.
Similar methods were used in attacks on June 18, and Aug. 1, 2016. Deputies have said in the past they believed the cases were connected.
The suspect has not yet been identified, as he hasn’t been formally charged yet in the cases, but is currently being held in the Naples Jail Center.
CCSO says the investigation is still active and ongoing.
