The Crime Spree
The Orlando Sentinel reports that the crime spree began on June 30 when 32-year-old Benjamin Hovan broke into an apartment in Casselberry. Armed with a knife, Hovan ordered the two women inside the apartment to the floor. He then rifled through their belongings. Eventually, Hovan told the women to go into a bedroom, where he proceeded to rape one of them.
Hovan then forced the women to drive him to a Publix, where he ordered one of them to get money from a nearby ATM. Instead, the woman told a Publix employee to call 911.
When Hovan realized what was happening, he kicked the other woman out of the car and sped off.
The Casselberry Police Department identified Hovan using fingerprints left at the scene in the apartment; a massive manhunt ensued.
