    ORLANDO, Fla. - Officials have arrested a man they believe is responsible for sexually battering a woman at gunpoint near Orange Blossom Trail earlier this month.

    A woman told police that she was walking north on Orange Blossom Trail in the early hours of June 12 when she said the man, later identified as 31-year-old Rovial Walker, threatened her with a firearm and attacked her.

    Surveillance video from the area shows a man taking the woman from an industrial area where they believe the assault took place.



    In provided sketches and surveillance of the area, officials described Walker as wearing a black hoodie, black jeans and yellow shorts underneath his jeans.

    Residents in the area were relieved to hear he was captured.

    "I'm glad he's off the street because I have a family down there myself," said Mondez Owens. 

    Walker faces charges of sexual battery with a deadly weapon, robbery with a firearm, kidnapping, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and false imprisonment.

    He is set to make his first appearance before a judge Wednesday morning.
