Robert Francis Medina, age 40
394 NE 60 Avenue
Subject charged with two counts-False Imprisonment and Battery-Domestic Violence
On June 11, 2013, at 4:28 p.m., deputies responded to a complaint of domestic violence. The victim advised the deputies that she and the suspect had been arguing for four days. She left the residence and went to a friend’s house. A short time later Medina arrived and told her to go home. The victim then left the residence. She then saw that Medina was behind her at which point he started to chase her in his vehicle. She stopped her vehicle to avoid a crash. Medina jumped out of his car and ran back to her. The suspect then proceeded to batter the victim by grabbing her hair, pulling her head between her two front seats and slapping her in the mouth with the back of his hand. She went back to her friend’s house. Medina arrived and was beating on the door. He left three or four times but kept returning. He was told the neighbors were calling the cops. Medina left the residence. Law Enforcement arrived along with Fire Rescue. The victim refused treatment and advised she did not want to fill out a statement and did not want him arrested. Deputies attempted to locate Medina but were unsuccessful.
At approximately 7:15 p.m. OCSO received a call stating the victim, along with another female went back to the residence at 394 NE 60 Avenue and were inside with Medina, and the caller was afraid for their well being. Deputies set up a perimeter around the house. The deputies then proceeded to the front door at which time it opened slightly as one woman stated she couldn’t open the door, deputies assisted her out of the house. As members of OCSO Special Response Team(SRT) and OCSO negotiators arrived on the scene, the victim ran out of the house and advised that Medina was still in the house. Negotiators spoke with Medina on the phone and a short time later he walked outside and was taken into custody without incident.
