WINTER PARK, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
A man accused of sexually assaulting 15-year-old girl on several occasions in her Winter Park remains in jail without bond.
Robert Zeeken, 31, is charged burglary, sexual battery, lewd battery on a victim over 12, traveling to meet a minor, seducing a child over the Internet, and contributing to the delinquency or dependency of a child.
Investigators said it all began with online chatting. Zeeken met the girl and got her home address through social media. Winter Park police officers said Zeeken broke into the home and attacked the girl several times over a couple of weeks, with the most recent incident happening on Christmas Eve of last year.
Investigators have been working this case since February 23, shortly after the victim decided to report what had happened to her sister.
Zeeken had an initial appearance in front of a judge at the Orange County Jail on Thursday afternoon. It only lasted four minutes, three of which the judge spent reading through all the charges that Zeeken faces.
Winter Park police are investigating whether Zeeken met and assaulted cardinal victims. His arraignment will happen within the next 90 days.
