— A Tampa man accused of raping a woman at an East Naples hotel Monday was arrested Wednesday by Collier County sheriff's deputies.

Alfredo Bautista Carranza, 20, of Tampa, faces a charge of sexual battery.

Staff at Physician's Regional Medical Center-Pine Ridge called the Sheriff’s Office to report a sexual assault after the woman’s boyfriend took her to the hospital. She was “highly intoxicated” and vomited several times, according to reports.

The woman, who was staying at the Super 8 Motel at 3880 Tollgate Blvd., later said she went to the pool around 5 p.m. and met two men who gave her a malt beverage. Shortly after, they went to the pool at the nearby Comfort Inn, where the men bought her six liquor drinks.

The woman told detectives the next thing she remembered was waking up in a hotel room to one of the men having sex with her and another man standing next to her naked. She told the man to get off her, but he covered her mouth and kept going, according to an arrest report.

He eventually got off of her after she begged him, and she grabbed her clothes and left the room. The woman said she does not remember anything else until her boyfriend found her lying in the Comfort Inn parking lot. An incident report said she was curled up and calling his name.

The woman later was given a sexual assault exam where bruising was photographed and taken into evidence.

Through an investigation, detectives named Carranza as a suspect. The woman also identified him as the man who raped her, according to an arrest report.
