Arrest Made In Sexual Battery Case

Detectives arrested a Hillsborough County man Wednesday and charged him with a felony in connection with the sexual battery of a woman at an East Naples hotel Monday.

Alfredo Bautista Carranza, 20, of Tampa, faces one count of sexual battery with special conditions.

The victim told detectives that two men had bought her drinks at the pool bar at the Comfort Inn & Executive Suites, 3860 Tollgate Blvd, according to arrest reports. The next thing she remembered was waking up in a room at the hotel with one of the men having sexual intercourse with her, while the other man was standing next to her undressed, reports said.

When she told the man who was on top of her to get off, he covered her mouth and continued having sex with her. She begged him to get off of her and eventually he did. She ran out of the room and was later found by a friend in the hotel parking lot, reports said.

The victim provided detectives with a description of the two men. The investigation led detectives to Carranza.

Detectives located Carranza at the hotel, where he was a guest, Wednesday.

The victim identified Carranza as the man who was having sexual intercourse with her when she woke up.
