Registered Sex Offender Faces New Rape Charge

Posted: Updated:

A registered sex offender is facing multiple new charges, including rape, in Walton County.

The sheriff's office said Johnathon Michael Saylor, 37, was taken into custody Friday at his home.

According to investigators, Saylor was giving the victim a ride to her home when he suddenly struck her in the face with his fist.  Saylor allegedly refused to let the woman out of the vehicle and began choking her, then held a knife to her throat and raped her.

The victim later escaped.

Deputies reportedly found Saylor at his home and, when questioned about the attack, he reportedly tried to run but was soon captured.

The WCSO said Saylor has three other sex crimes on his record.
