Silver Springs man arrested after nasty domestic spat

Jorge Napoleon Ochoa

A Silver Springs man is accused of battering a woman who was trying to move out of the room they shared and into another room in the residence.

Jorge Napoleon Ochoa, 61, was charged early Sunday with domestic battery on a person 65 years of age or older. He told a Marion County sheriff’s deputy the victim wouldn’t leave him alone and she wanted to move out of their room. Ochoa said he started throwing the victim’s items onto the hallway floor but there was no physical contact between them, according to the sheriff’s office report.

The victim said she and Ochoa had been arguing and she decided to move to another room. She said she entered the shared room to get her dentures and Ochoa started throwing her belongings out into the hallway. The victim said Ochoa threw her phone to the ground and when she tried to retrieve it, he grabbed her by the back of her shirt and pulled her out of the room, causing her to hit her arm and leg on the doorway, the report said.

Deputies observed a raised, heavily bruised bump on the victim’s left wrist, as well as redness, scratches and a small bruise on her let knee. Medics responded and said she had a possible broke blood vessel, but she declined further treatment, according to the report.

Ochoa was released Monday on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in Marion County Court on June 30.
