Police say a 45-year-old man was not given bond at his first appearance after being arrested for attacking an 82-year-old woman.


A 45-year-old man was arrested on allegations that he forced his way into an 82-year-old Orlando woman's apartment, cut off her clothes and raped her.

Orlando police say Dominic Alonze Reed broke into the woman's apartment Saturday night and fled the area after raping and robbing her.

Officers located Reed Sunday in the downtown area and arrested him without incident. He was wearing the same clothing from the time of the crime, police said.

Reed faces several charges, including sexual battery with a deadly weapon/physical force, home invasion robbery, armed kidnapping with intent to commit a felony and aggravated battery on a person over 65 with a deadly weapon.

The woman was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Reed was being held in the Orange County Jail on a no-bond status. Police said he was homeless and was arrested less than two weeks ago for violating a city ordinance for camping.
