BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A South Florida man was arrested Thursday on accusations that he raped three women this year in an industrial area in Boynton Beach.

Detectives said the incidents were reported in January, June and July on Corporate Drive.

According to an arrest report, Xolani Mtsitsha, 36, of Boca Raton, offered the women rides and then would force himself on them before he dropped them off.

In the Jan. 15 case, the woman told detectives that she initially agreed to have sex with Mtstitsha, but he didn't have a condom so she put her clothes back on and told him to take her to West Palm Beach.

Police said Mtstitsha drove a short distance, parked and then forced himself on the victim.

The victim from the June 30 incident told detectives that she was only looking for a ride home, but Mtsitsha forced her pants down and raped her before dropping her off.

Another woman told police that she agreed to have sex with Mtsitsha July 13 for $60 after he picked her up in Lake Worth.

But she said she discovered that she was menstruating. She said Mtsitsha wanted to have anal sex, but she refused.

Mtsitsha held the woman down and forced his penis into her anus, the arrest report said.

Mtsitsha faces multiple counts of sexual battery.

Detectives believe that there might be other victims who have not yet come forward.

Anyone with information about the cases or who was a victim of Mtsitsha is asked to call Detective Raymond Lagor at 561-742-6144 or Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
