SHADY HILLS — A 45-year-old man is accused of raping a mentally disabled woman.
Kenneth S. Brown, of 16916 Jetson Drive, was arrested Tuesday and is charged with sexual battery.
The victim, who is 24 but has the mental awareness of a 12-year-old child, has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, according to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
The alleged incidents happened between January and June 2008. Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, said the victim told someone about what happened, which prompted the investigation.
Brown, who told authorities he is a maintenance mechanic for Reddy Ice in Plant City, is being held in the Pasco jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
