Florida man accused of raping neighbor, offering to do yard work to ‘make up for it’

(Meredith) – An 18-year-old Florida man was arrested on accusations that he sexually assaulted his neighbor and asked if he could do yard work to make amends.

Timothy Adam Walding allegedly broke into the woman’s home while she slept, put a knife to her throat and tied her hands up before the assault on Sept. 6, The Palm Beach Post reports.

The woman told deputies that Walding remained inside her home after the attack and told her she needed to put a deadbolt on her door.

She said Walding then asked her, “if he could make this up to her by doing some yard work or by fixing something around her house,” according to a sheriff’s office report.

The woman said she only continued the conversation with Walding so he wouldn’t hurt her, and then called 911 as soon as he left.

According to arrest records, Walding is being held at the Palm Beach County jail without bond on charges of sexual assault with a weapon or force and kidnapping/false imprisonment.
