Man Beat Girlfriend with Brass Knuckle Knife and Left Her in Woods

A man in Florida is facing charges after he allegedly kidnapped and beat his girlfriend with a brass knuckle knife before leaving her injured and alone in the woods.

On the evening of May 9, a 33-year-old man and his girlfriend went out for some drinks, and when they went back to his Titusville residence they got into an argument. According to his girlfriend, the man gets angry easily when he has alcohol. The situation became intense, and the man allegedly brought his girlfriend to his vehicle and forced her to climb into the trunk.

He reportedly drove approximately 5 miles to the Salt Lake Wildlife Management Area with the woman trapped in the trunk. They reached a woodsy area, and the man pulled over and let his girlfriend out.

When the woman stood up, her boyfriend, who reportedly had a brass knuckle knife, started striking her with the weapon. When she was injured and bloody, the man allegedly pulled away and left her in the forest without her cell phone. She was able to walk back to the house, where the man was asleep, and she called and asked a friend to come and pick her up.

The authorities were notified, and the alleged victim shared her account of the events with the police. She also reportedly produced text messages containing an apology to her that were assumed to have come from her boyfriend.

When the police talked to the man, he reportedly said he only meant he was sorry that they got into an argument. He told the officers he did not hit her.

The man was arrested and booked into the Brevard County Jail. He is facing preliminary charges of felony kidnapping to commit/facilitate commission of a felony, felony aggravated battery on a police officer, and violation of probation. He is currently being held without bond.
