DELAND, Florida. – Florida authorities say a woman who was beaten and held captive for two days at gunpoint by her boyfriend escaped when she convinced him to take their dog to an animal hospital – and then slipped a note from a staff member.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal quotes the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said the 39-year-old Jeremy Floyd was arrested in the Country Animal Hospital. He is being held without bond on domestic violence and other charges.
The report says Floyd struck the woman Wednesday and refused to let her leave their house. Two days later, she convinced Floyd to let her take their dog to a veterinarian, although he did not let her go alone.
It is unclear whether Floyd has retained a lawyer.
