Homeless man accused of rape, battery

A 41-year-old homeless man is accused of raping a woman Tuesday night in a wooded area near U.S. 19 and State Road 52. Troy Glover faces charges of sexual battery and domestic battery. The victim, who was not identified, told deputies Glover had sexual intercourse with her against her will. She had a severely swollen eye, burn and bite marks and was treated at a local hospital, according to Glover's arrest report. Authorities do not believe the attack was random. Glover was being held without bail Wednesday in the Land O'Lakes jail.
