Man arrested in Ocala after allegedly entering woman’s home through bedroom window, choking her

A 30-year-old man was arrested by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office after a woman accused him of entering her residence through a bedroom window and choking her.

On Monday, an MCSO deputy responded to the intersection of SE 58th Avenue and Cherry Road in Ocala in reference to a battery incident. Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with Herbert Eddie Olivo, Jr. who claimed that he had been battered by the female victim inside a local residence.

The deputy noted in the MCSO report that Olivo’s only visible injuries were a few cuts on his right hand.

Two deputies responded to the residence where the alleged incident occurred. The deputies made contact with the female victim who was “extremely hysterical and crying,” according to the MCSO report.

The victim advised that Olivo had arrived at the residence uninvited and entered the home through her bedroom window. When the victim asked him to leave, Olivo allegedly grabbed her neck with both hands.

According to the victim, she was unable to breathe while Olivo had his hands around her neck. The MCSO report stated that there were visible red marks around the victim’s neck  that were consistent with her statement.

The victim further advised that she ran outside the home to get away from Olivo. She stated that Olivo followed her outside, and she was struck in the back of the head by an unknown object.

The victim had a lump on the back of her head that was also consistent with her statement, according to the MCSO report.

The victim’s car was parked near the residence and the deputies observed a hole in the vehicle’s rear window. The victim claimed that Olivo had somehow caused the damage to her car, which was estimated at $1,000.

A deputy responded to the intersection of SE 58th Avenue and Cherry Road and made contact with Olivo. After being read his Miranda rights, Olivo admitted that he punched the rear window of the victim’s car because he was angry, according to the MCSO report.

When another deputy arrived at the intersection and asked about the victim’s injuries, Olivo advised that he “remembered his hands being around the shoulder area” of the victim during the incident.

Olivo was arrested and transported to Marion County Jail where he is currently being held on $6,000 bond. He is facing felony charges for burglary with assault or battery and criminal mischief with property damage ($1,000 or more).

A court date has been scheduled at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 7, according to jail records.
