A Florida teen who allegedly raped his neighbour thought he could make things right by doing her yardwork.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Boynton Beach teen Timothy Walding is facing sexual assault, burglary and false imprisonment charges in the rape of the woman this past Friday.
According to an arrest report obtained by the newspaper, Walding allegedly broke into his neighbour’s home while she slept and woke her up by holding a knife to her throat.
The 18-year-old then tied the victim’s hands to the bed and sexually assaulted her.
The arrest report stated Walding told his victim, “You really should deadbolt your door because I didn’t really want to do this, but I had to do it.”
According to the New York Daily News, the woman told cops she could only see Walding’s eyes when he tied her up but Walden later took off his mask to reveal his identity.
