Florida Man Charged With Holding Ex-Girlfriend Captive

KENNETH CITY, Fla. (AP) — Police have arrested a southwest Florida man they say broke into his ex-girlfriend’s condominium, held her captive and sexually assaulted her.

Kenneth City Police said 20-year-old Preston Meierhoff hid in a bedroom until his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend arrived. When they arrived, authorities said Meierhoff attacked Nicholas Matthews and forced him to leave the apartment with his girlfriend inside.

Matthews called police and warned them that Meierhoff had held the victim against her will a few weeks ago and that she had been unable to escape for some time. Matthews also told police Meierhoff had made violent threats against her.

Police said they broke into the victim’s condo Tuesday and found Meierhoff sexually assaulting the victim.

He was charged with battery, sexual battery, burglary to a residence, and false imprisonment.
