MIAMI – A Hallandale Beach handyman is facing
multiple charges after police say he raped a woman inside of her
daughter’s Sunny Isles Beach condo.
68, is accused of raping a 66-year-old woman who was
babysitting her year and half old grandchild.
During his bond hearing on Tuesday, Hundewadt shook his
head “no” as each allegation against him was read in
According to the woman, Hundewadt had been hired to fix
one of the bathrooms in her daughter’s ninth floor unit
at the Arlen House condo complex off Collins Avenue.
The woman told police when she stood by the bathroom
door to ask him if the lights had been fixed, he replied
no then forcefully wrapped his arms around her and
kissed her on the lips.
When the woman broke free, Hundewadt reportedly went to the kitchen,
grabbed a knife and then walked back to the woman, pointed at her and
said, “You are going to give it to me.”
The woman said he then pushed her into a bedroom and raped her.
When the woman’s daughter came home, the two went to the police station
and filed a report. The 66-year-old woman gave police a tissue she said
she used after the assault that had DNA evidence.
Police said Hundewadt admitted to having sex with the woman but said it
A private attorney argued for bond and GPS monitoring, saying Hundewadt
had strong community ties and no prior criminal record.
However, the judge ordered Hundewadt, who is facing several charges
including armed sexual battery and kidnapping, be held on no bond.
