Orlando, FL (June 28, 2019) – Earlier this month, an alleged sexual battery took place when a man battered a woman at gunpoint near the Orange Blossom Trail.
The woman spoke with deputies and told them that she had been walking north on the trail on June 12 when a man suddenly walked out and threatened her with a firearm while attacking her. The man has since been identified as 31-year-old Rovial Walker.
Surveillance video was collected showing a man taking the woman from an industrial area, where they believe the assault occurred. Walker was described as wearing a black hoodie, black jeans, and yellow shorts, and a photo was also released showing what he looked like. Tips led police in Walker’s direction.
Walker is now facing charges of sexual battery with a deadly weapon, robbery with a firearm, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and more.
