LAKE WORTH , Fla. – Authorities say a 62-year-old man lured a woman into a padlocked bedroom, ordered her to take off her shirt and raped her.
The woman told police she met Gerard Louis Cardarelli at a yard sale on Saturday.
He asked her if she knew anyone looking for work cleaning houses, and the woman said she was interested.
The next day at Cardarelli's home, the woman reported following him into the bedroom, where he raped her, told her not to tell anyone and gave her $45.
When police later searched the room, they found daggers and machetes hanging from the walls and an unloaded .357 magnum pistol in a case near the bed.
Cardarelli was arrested Sunday and charged with sexual assault. He was being held on $10,000 bail.
