Suspect stood with victim's daughter at press conference:

A 28-year-old Florida man arrested in the connection with the brutal beating and rape of a 70-year-old woman refused yesterday to show up at his first court appearance.

Robert Acosta, of Orlando, had previously been arrested after police say they recovered DNA and fingerprint evidence as well as nearby surveillance video images.

According to reports, Acosta had befriended the family over time and on Thursday went into the woman’s home and viciously attacked and raped her.

The elderly victim, who is in the hospital, received a broken arm, swollen eyes and bruises around her face.

Acosta, who also faces attempted murder charges, denies the allegations.
