Deputies: Wimauma man beaten after making 'inappropriate sexual comments'

8-12-2014 Florida:

WIMAUMA -- A Wimauma man was arrested after deputies said he beat up a man who made "inappropriate sexual comments" to his girlfriend.

Erin Robinson, 19, is facing charges of attempted first-degree murder in connection with the beating, which happened Monday.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Raul Ortiz, 58, and the girlfriend were at a store, and Ortiz was looking down her shirt and making inappropriate sexual comments to her.

The woman then told Robinson and other family members what had happened. Deputies said she knew Ortiz because he had previously dated Robinson's father's girlfriend.

Later that day, Robinson, his girlfriend and two unidentified people went to Ortiz's home on 12th Street to confront him about his behavior. When they got to his house, Robinson and Ortiz began arguing, and Robinson punched Ortiz in the fact three times, detectives said.

Ortiz fell to the ground, and Robinson grabbed his head and slammed it several times against concrete landscaping rocks, detectives said.

Robinson then fled the scene and was later taken into custody by deputies. He has been booked into the Hillsborough County Jail.

Ortiz was "severely injured" in the altercation. He was taken to South Bay Hospital, then later to Blake Hospital in Brandon. ..Source.. by
