It turns out that this offended might actually have a conscience.

According to new reports, a Florida teen allegedly raped his neighbour at knifepoint, while wearing a mask. He then offered to make up to his victim by ‘doing some yard work or by fixing something’ around her house, says arrest report.

 

The youngster, Timothey Adam Walding, 18, of Boynton Beach is now being held without bond at the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of three counts of sexual assault with a weapon and a single count of burglary and one on false imprisonment following the attack, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The young man broke into the woman’s house while she slept and put a knife to her throat before tying her up to the bed prior to the attack. Afterward, he stayed at the woman’s home and told her that she knew him, an arrest report said.

The victim, who hasn't been named, says she woke up in the middle of the night to find Walding 'hovering over her' wearing a mask.

 

At some point, she realised that Walding is a neighbour and he eventually untied her for a smoke outside.

According to reports, he told her that she really should deadbolt her door because even though he did not want to do it but he had to.

He then asked her 'if he could make this up to her by doing some yard work or by fixing something around her house.' To which she replied no.

Apparently he also said that he did not want to kill her because his own mother passed away when he was 12 and he could not imagine leaving two children without a mum.

Walding further revealed that he would be joining the military as it would be awkward living nearby.

 

He went back to his home after about an hour and a half, at which point the victim went back inside to call for help.
