Disney World Assault Suspect Released After Posting Bond

Authorities in Florida arrested a man in connection with a possible sexual assault last week outside Walt Disney World's restaurant and entertainment complex.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that 26-year-old Hector M. Herrera was arrested at his home Thursday on a warrant in "the sexual battery incident." The statement said no further information would be released immediately.

Herrera was booked into the Osceola County Jail on $50,000 bond, records showed. An electronic docket showed no attorney for him, and he didn't answer his phone Friday.

Herrera later posted bond and was released from jail.

Earlier this week, police said they were investigating a possible sexual assault after a security guard found a woman naked and disoriented a week ago Thursday in shrubbery outside Disney Springs, which used to be known as Downtown Disney.

The woman said she had no recollection of what happened, and that if any sexual activity took place, it wasn't consensual.
