The Osceola County man accused of raping a woman and leaving her naked in a bush near the House of Blues at Downtown Disney told investigators he "made a mistake."

According to an arrest warrant, Hector Herrera told investigators he did not alert security because he knew it would look bad.

Herrera, 26, was arrested Thursday for the July 16 incident. He was released later that night on a $50,000 bond.

Walt Disney World confirmed Herrera was a cast member and was placed on unpaid leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.

Herrera's neighbors said they were shocked by the charge, but even more surprised by his confession, because they said he was a "nice guy."

"I hope it's a mistake, because it's shocking," said Marie Ocean, who lives next door to Herrera.

Investigators said Herrera was seen on surveillance video holding up a woman and walking her out of the House of Blues early on the morning of July 16. The woman, who had been drinking with friends earlier in the night, said she didn't remember leaving the building.

Herrera was arrested because investigators said she was obviously not in a state to provide consent. Herrera told police after the "heat of the moment" subsided, he realized he had made a mistake.

Herrera was unavailable to comment on the allegations Friday. Investigators said they were treating this case as an isolated incident.
