ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Winter Park police are trying to find out if a man accused of raping a developmentally challenged teenager has any more victims.
Police said 31-year-old Robert Dziekan used social media to take advantage of the 15-year-old girl with diminished mental capacity, then repeatedly broke into her home and raped her.
On Thursday, Channel 9 was there as police carried armloads of evidence from Dziekan’s home as his wife watched.
Investigators believe Dzeikan’s computer and other electronics will reveal if there are more victims.
Police said the victim has the mental capacity of a child who called Questline, a chat line advertised on television, to talk to men.
Reports said the girl was talking to numerous men but when she told them her age, everyone hung up except Dziekan, who was able to get her address.
Investigators said he showed up at her house unannounced and raped her.
Police said the victim said she wanted him to leave because she was scared.
Reports show Dziekan continued to communicate with the girl through the Kik messenger phone app.
Investigators said he came back to her home another four or five times and sexually battered her.
The victim has a door in her room that leads outside, and police said that’s why no one else knew Dziekan was showing up.
“I would have never have guessed,” said Ali Negron, one of Dziekan’s neighbors. “Family guy, that’s the way I look at him. I’m pretty stick to my stomach that he’s my neighbor.”
The victim’s sister eventually found out and told their parents.
Investigators are concerned there are more victims after one of the detectives posed as a young girl online and contacted Dziekan.
Investigators said on Wednesday Dziekan told the undercover detective through social media that he could sneak in and out of her window to meet with her.
Dziekan, who has small children of his own, could face 50 years in prison if convicted.
On Thursday, state lawmakers passed a bill that would impose a mandatory sentence of 50 years for those convicted of the rape or torture of children, seniors or the disabled.
The bill is headed to Gov. Rick Scott.
