Land O'Lakes man accused in two more rapes of prostitutes

LAND O'LAKES — Two more women have come forward with allegations about the man they said raped them at knifepoint. That brings the total to five.

It began in October, when Nathan Christopher Floyd, 30, picked up prostitutes in Hillsborough and Pasco counties and brought them to Dade City and Land O'Lakes, a Pasco County Sheriff's report said. He raped the women in the woods, holding a switchblade.

The most recent rapes happened on Jan. 26 and Jan. 27, the reports state.

Floyd, of 21376 Snook Circle in Land O'Lakes, was already being held in Land O'Lakes jail without bail when the most recent rape charges were added.

He is now being held on five counts of sexual battery with a deadly weapon and one count of felony possession of a firearm on a warrant. His bail has been set at more than $1.7 million.
