Pasco man accused of preying on prostitutes

WESLEY CHAPEL — Nathan C. Floyd, a 30-year-old laborer with the grim reaper tattooed on his forearm, is accused of preying on prostitutes in Hillsborough and Pasco counties.

Authorities say the women willingly followed him to locations where he raped them, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office states.

As of Friday afternoon, Floyd was charged with raping three women, all prostitutes in Hillsborough. Pasco sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said Floyd brought the women to Pasco. The victims told investigators that Floyd held a knife to their throats and threatened them during the act. One victim, who is 38, said Floyd brought her to a house in the Angus Valley neighborhood of Wesley Chapel on Nov. 1. The other two victims, ages 33 and 25, said they were assaulted in the woods.

Doll said it is unclear how many women were victimized by Floyd, who lives at 21376 Snook Circle in Land O'Lakes. The case is under investigation by the sheriff's offices in Pasco and Hillsborough. More charges are expected, Doll said. Doll said the Angus Valley home belongs to Floyd's parents.

Floyd is charged with three counts of sexual battery with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He is being held without bail at the Pasco jail.
