ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - A judge denied bail Thursday for an Orlando man after he was arrested on charges of trying to abduct two women and a teenage girl.

At his first appearance, Carlos Caban wasted little time asking the judge about bond.

"Um, when would be a … When do you think I'll be able to get bond on that?" asked Caban.

He was arrested on charges of false imprisonment, battery, and aggravated stalking after Orange County deputies said he tried to abduct or molest two women and a 14-year-old girl in East Orange County, all within 30 minutes.

Fifteen-year-old Makayla Rouse was watching Eyewitness News at 6 on Wednesday, and said Caban is the same man who allegedly tried to lure her into his white pickup truck last week on her way home from University High School.

"My heart sank. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I know that's the guy that had been following me,’” said Rouse.

Investigators said they are working to determine if Caban will face more charges and worry there may be more victims.

"We want anyone who thinks they may have had any encounter with this individual to come forward," said Jane Watrel of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Caban's father defended his 24-year-old son.

"He can be a lot of things, but personally I don't think he's capable of this, so I really don't know what happened," said Pepe Caban.

WFTV found out that Caban was released from prison in August after serving four years for armed robbery.
