A student at Florida Gulf Coast University was arrested Monday, accused of sexually assaulting two fellow students while on campus.

Joshua Daniel Sekulic, 21, faces two counts of sexual battery. He also is accused of attacking and biting a third woman who refused his advances, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

On Saturday, two women reported to FGCU police that they had been sexually assaulted by Sekulic. The first woman told police she invited him to her on-

campus apartment Oct. 24 to watch a movie. The woman said Sekulic demanded sex, taking off her clothes and raping her after she refused.

The second woman also said she had invited Sekulic to her dorm room Oct. 30. She said Sekulic pinned her down, forcing her to perform a sex act after she said no.

Sekulic also faces a misdemeanor charge of battery in connection to a third woman’s account. The woman told officers Sekulic was in her student apartment

Oct. 28 when she asked him to leave. He then grabbed her, bit her shoulder and threw her on the bed, according to her account. She said Sekulic left after she was able to break free.

Anyone with information about other possible victims can call the Sheriff’s Office at 239-477-1050.
