Brooksville, FL -- Hernando County police are searching for a man accused of armed sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Allen Everett Koonce, 47, is wanted for attacking a woman on December 23rd at a mutual friend's home in Brooksville. When she arrived at the home at 8:30 p.m., Koonce handcuffed, sexually battered, beat, and threatened her with a knife and rife. No one else was at the home during the attack. In the early morning hours of Dec. 24, after Koonce fell asleep, the woman was able to escape from the house and call for help. She was taken to a local hospital, treated for her injuries and has been released.

Koonce is a transient and the victim helps homeless people from time to time. His whereabouts are unknown at this time. He could be staying in transient camps. Koonce is from Hernando County and could still be in the Brooksville area.

He is possibly still armed with a knife.  Anyone who sees Koonce or knows his whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately. He is described to be 5'6", 135 pounds with red hair and green eyes.
