Spring Break Suspected Rapist Arrested

PANAMA CITY BEACH- A West Palm Beach man has been charged with raping at least one Spring Breaker here in Panama City Beach, is still in the Bay County jail.

Twenty-two year old Edgar Eduardo Jaramillo Lopez went before a judge Tuesday afternoon for a bond hearing. Due to translation issues, the hearing was postponed.

Panama City Beach police arrested Lopez Monday, charging him with sexual battery. They say he'd been driving a C-K Taxi Cab for the Spring Break season. He allegedly picked-up a Spring Breaker on March 10th, took her to a secluded area off Front Beach Road, and raped her.

Beach Police and Bay County Sheriff's Deputies say they're investigating him as the suspect in other rapes of spring breakers.

His bond hearing has been rescheduled for Wednesday.
