The Cape Coral Police Department is asking victims to come forward after a man was arrested and accused of a brutal attack and sex crimes.

On Dec. 5, Douglas Edward Skoczek, 66, was arrested after what police call a brutal attack on a 30-year-old woman he met on a dating app. He was arrested for sexual battery and false imprisonment and bonded out of jail the next day.

On Dec. 13, a second victim, who is 17 years old, came forward.

After serving a search warrant at Skoczek’s home, he was arrested again and now faces seven counts of sexual battery of a minor and one count of sexual battery and kidnapping.
