Florida Man Accused Of Attacking His Girlfriend With A Flashlight On Christmas

Christopher Lockamy is charged with felonious assault, abduction and disrupting public services

A Florida man is accused of attacking his girlfriend on Christmas, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said.

Christopher Lockamy, 27, was arguing with his girlfriend at about 10 p.m. in a trailer they share on the 9100 block of Mentor Avenue.

He got mad and hit her in the face with a 12-inch flashlight, breaking her nose in two places, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said.

Then Lockamy would not let his girlfriend leave and took away her cell phone so she could not call police, Allen said.

When Lockamy went to get her a glass of water, the girlfriend ran outside and shouted for help. Lockamy went outside and forced her back into the trailer but a neighbor heard her shouts and called police, Allen said.

When police arrived, Lockamy forced his girlfriend to hide and threatened to hurt her more if she didn't, Allen said.

Lockamy also hid the flashlight.

But when police arrived, they found both the girlfriend and flashlight.

Lockamy was arrested and charged with felonious assault, abduction and disrupting public services.

He was arraigned Wednesday morning in Mentor Municipal Court.

Because he is facing felony charges, Lockamy did not have the option to plead "guilty." Instead he could only make no plea or plead not guilty. He made no plea on all three charges.

Lockamy told Mentor Municipal Court Judge John Trebets that he had no job and that all of his family lived down south.

Trebets set Lockamy's bond at $175,000 and ordered him not to contact the victim.

I certainly hope this guy doesn't get let out of jail. You KNOW he wouldn't stick around here! Here is a clear case of both physical and mental abuse. Judge, if found guilty, please charge accordingly.

Holy Cow!! I hope this girl gets a restraining order and gets and stays as far away from this guy as possible. He's gonna kill her if he gets out and I don't want to read about that. She's lucky to be alive and that someone heard her and followed through and called police. Please if you know her keep her safe and away from this guy.
