MOUNT DORA — Authorities say a Clermont man accused of trying to rape a woman at her apartment complex last week received additional charges Tuesday afternoon.

According to John Herrell,  Lake County Sheriff's Office spokesman, the new charges against Robert Pascual, 22, stem from an investigation that began last summer regarding allegations that he inappropriately touched a juvenile relative in Mount Dora. The 11-year-old victim told police that Pascual approached her when she was in bed, covered her mouth and began touching her before attempting to take her outside.

Police believe Pascual left the Mount Dora area following the incident and moved to Clermont.

He was charged with lewd or lascivious molestation on a victim less than 12 years of age after being transported from Orange County.

Last week, Pascual was arrested after police say he violently attacked a woman and tried to rape her at the Ashton Chase Apartments in the Four Corners area.

He allegedly dragged the victim out of her vehicle by her hair as she tried to scratch and bite him. As she tried to scream, Pascual repeatedly banged her head against the ground to muffle her sounds, then told her he was going to have sex with her. 

When he pulled her pants and underwear off, the victim convinced Pascual to go back to her car, but it was a ruse. 

The woman had a knife hidden in the storage compartment of her vehicle, grabbed it and stabbed Pascual, the affidavit added. 

Before he was able to get into the vehicle, she locked the doors and drove off.

Pascual was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center in stable condition and was charged with burglary of an occupied conveyance with battery, attempted sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Authorities say Pascual also fits the description of a man who approached female residents at the complex in a suspicious manner four times on Nov. 30 and Dec. 2 and another time at a separate apartment complex in the same area.

He remains in the Lake County Jail Wednesday on no bond.
