LAKE HOLDEN, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a man they say is a serial rapist and has already attacked three women in the same area of Orange County.

The latest attack occurred early Thursday morning when
authorities say a woman was going to her car outside her home.

According to police, on of his victims says she saw a man and went back inside and locked the door.

The man then broke in and attacked her, but she was able to fight him
off.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office believes the attacker could be the same man who raped two other women, one on Sept. 19 and one
on Oct. 14. Both rapes happened less than a mile from Thursday's
attack.

Deputies have checked registered sex offenders in the area with
little luck.

Authorities are waiting for lab results to come back
from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
