A 19-year-old girl was carjacked from the Target on University Blvd. and Goldenrod Rd., just down the street from the University of Central Florida, according to Eyewitness News at 10.
The victim was forced into her own car by the suspect at the Target after she spent time shopping, possibly for Mother’s Days gifts, an Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy told the TV station.

After being forced into the car, the man reportedly brought her to a house and raped her, deputies told the station.
But her nightmare didn’t end there. The suspect then drove her around for 2 hours to banks, including the Bank of America on East Colonial Dr., where he tried forcing her to withdraw money. Once employees realized something was wrong, he drove off, the station reported.
Deputies chased him and used a pit maneuver to take him into custody. According to the Orlando Sentinel, they later identified the suspect as Steve Cahanding, 41, of Orange County.
He was reportedly booked into the Orange County jail on multiple charges of kidnapping and sexual battery.
