The relationship between two people is often complex, filled with emotional highs and lows. However, violence in a relationship is relatively rare. Unfortunately, one man was recently arrested after the alleged assault of a woman he knows at a Florida nightclub.

The man charged with the crime is said to have known the alleged victim. According to reports, the man, who is not a United States citizen, was deported after he was accused of battering the same woman involved in this recent incident. Reports indicate that he and the 26-year-old victim traveled together to the nightclub where the woman works. He allegedly remained at the scene until the woman completed her shift at 5 a.m.

According to reports, the man became violent when the woman refused to leave with him. He reportedly forced her into his car using a knife and assaulted her. She claims she was ultimately able to exit the car and seek help from security guards. The man now faces charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping and sexual assault. While a report regarding the incident claims that the man arrived in Florida approximately a week prior to the incident, it is unclear how he was able to return to the country.

The man now faces a complicated situation as a recent of the assault and other accusations. Without legal training and experience, the average person in Florida is likely unsure how to proceed and the best actions to take when facing criminal charges. As a result, many seek help from an experienced attorney. With the help of such a professional, they are more prepared to make informed decisions about their case.
