A 74-old-woman called police early Saturday morning and said a man had sexually assaulted her and was asleep in her mobile home.
Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Art Forgey said the incidents began at midnight, with Bryan banging on the victim’s door.
Bryan, who is 6 feet tall and weighs 230 pounds, grabbed her and pushed her inside, according to the report, and she told him to leave numerous times, but he refused.
The report says he forcefully removed her clothes, undressed himself and pushed her onto the bed. He allegedly then sexually assaulted her and told the victim she couldn’t leave until he was “done and got what he wanted.”
He left but returned 30 minutes later through a back sliding glass door, the report says, and sexually assaulted her again.
He then fell asleep in the bed, the report says, and the woman got to a phone and contacted authorities.
Officers responded and set up a perimeter, and a Gainesville Police Department K-9 unit was called in to assist. The officers yelled at the man to come outside, Forgey said, but he did not.
The police dog, named Argos, went in and found Bryan in the bed at the north end of the home. He refused to cooperate with police, and they used the dog to help with the arrest. Argos bit Bryan during the arrest.
After his arrest, Bryan reportedly told officials that the victim invited him over and that the acts were consensual. He said he left only to walk his dog.
The victim told officials she is afraid that Bryan will come after her if he is released from jail.
Bryan was treated for his injuries and taken to the Alachua County jail, where he remained Monday in lieu of $505,000 bond.
