A 34-year-old Ocala woman was arrested after a man claimed that she stabbed him in the head and neck with a screwdriver.
On Thursday, a Marion County Sheriff’s Office corporal responded to the MCSO Southwest District Office located at 9048 SW Highway 200 in Ocala in reference to a battery incident. Upon arrival, the corporal made contact with the male victim who advised that Dominique Detrice English had attacked him inside a moving vehicle, according to the MCSO report.
The victim stated that he was traveling westbound on Highway 200, with English in the passenger’s seat, when she became “highly upset” and began making suicidal statements. The victim advised that he turned the vehicle around and began heading eastbound on Highway 200 towards the MCSO Southwest District Office for help.
The victim told the deputy that English realized where they were going, and she allegedly reached towards the back seat and retrieved two small screwdrivers. According to the victim, English sliced the back of his neck with one of the screwdrivers while he was driving, and he felt it “slice his head” a total of three times.
When the victim reached the turn-in for the Southwest District Office, he stated that he attempted to remove the screwdrivers from English’s hands while outside of the vehicle. He told the deputy that he was unable to recall all of the details from the incident, though he remembered that English eventually ran away from the vehicle.
In the MCSO report, the deputy noted that there was a small stab wound on the back of the victim’s neck, and a long bloody scratch mark was visible next to the wound. The victim also had a small bloody scratch mark on top of his head along with a similar mark on the left side of his head.
The victim declined medical attention.
The deputy made contact with a male witness who advised that he was traveling eastbound on Highway 200 when he observed the victim on the ground. According to the witness, the victim was on top of English, and he was holding her wrists down.
The witness recalled hearing the victim yell for help. When the witness stopped to assist the victim, he stated that he saw English run across the road.
Multiple MCSO units responded to the incident location and attempted to locate English, but they were unable to find her.
A deputy responded to English’s residence on SE 60th Street in Ocala and was informed that family members had taken English to a local hospital. The deputy responded to the hospital and learned that English had checked herself in for “taking pills,” according to the MCSO report.
English was arrested and transported to Marion County Jail where she is currently being held without bond. She is facing a felony charge for committing aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
A court date has not been scheduled yet, according to jail records.
