DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A second woman has come forward, claiming that a Daytona Beach firefighter accused of raping and impregnating another woman also tried to rape her on the same night.
Authorities in Daytona Beach are searching for Adam Silva, 30, who was released from jail earlier this week after posting bond in the first incident.
According to Daytona Beach police, a woman who knows Silva said he rang her doorbell around 2:30 a.m. on May 19 and she let him in after retrieving her gun and finding out who was at her door.
Silva stepped inside and pulled his pants down, and the woman asked him what he was doing, police said.
The woman then turned around and placed her gun on a table and Silva grabbed her by the hair and tried to kiss her, according to the police report. Silva took his shirt off and approached the woman, who threw a chair and a bar stool at him, police said.
The woman ran to her bedroom to grab another gun, but Silva threw her face-down on the bed and tried to pull her shorts off, police said.
The woman was able to wrestle Silva to the ground after he tried to choke her and she put her knee on his throat and told him to leave, the report stated. Silva then got dressed and left, police said.
"We believe, when you look at this pattern that's emerging, this isn't a one-time event here, so if there's any women out there, you have our word that we'll do anything we can to help you. Nobody should stand for that," Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood said.
Daytona Beach police obtained a search warrant for Silva's home and his locker at Fire Station No. 1. Officers confiscated a laptop and thumb drives.
Another woman came to police and said while she was dating Silva she saw a thumb drive with a list of women on it that he appeared to have slept with. Police said the list was detailed and disturbing.
Detectives attempted to arrest Silva on Thursday on attempted sexual battery charges, but they could not find him.
Police said Silva may have gone to the woman's home directly after a prior incident in which he's accused of raping another woman.
Silva is accused of attacking a woman he met May 19 at the Ocean Deck in Daytona Beach. Silva was recorded on surveillance video taken at the Ocean Deck on the date of the attack, police said.
According to a police report, the victim and her friend met Silva at the bar, and after drinking together, Silva offered to take the victim back to her hotel, police said.
The victim told police Silva instead took her to a parking lot blocks away, where he raped and threatened her, saying she would "end up like Natalie [sic] Holloway."
Police found the victim wandering naked from the waist down, disoriented. According to the charging affidavit, the victim did not know the area and thought she was in West Virginia.
The day after the attack, Silva was brought in for questioning and immediately asked for an attorney.
A few weeks ago, investigators obtained a warrant for Silva's DNA after the victim told officers she was pregnant from the attack.
Investigators said DNA taken from the victim's rape kit links Silva to the attack, and they said they believe he impregnated her.
Daytona Beach Fire Chief James Bland released a statement on Wednesday, saying he's aware of the allegations involving Silva, who he said has been a "valued member of our department since 2007."
Silva is currently using personal leave and is not on duty, said Bland, who added that an internal review is under way and no potential action against Silva will take place "until the appropriate time."
