CRESTVIEW, Fla., Dec. 24, 2021—A Crestview man is being held without bond in the Okaloosa County Jail after the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office charged him yesterday with multiple domestic violence-related felonies.
Anthony William Roca, 37, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to commit a felony, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, kidnapping and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
The victim said Roca sexually assaulted her, punched her in the face and head, stomped and kicked her, and pulled her around by the hair the morning of Dec. 23.
She was not allowed to leave and was told by Roca that he was going to kill her. She said he broke her cell phone a couple of weeks ago, preventing her from being able to call 911.
Deputies found the victim suffering from significant injuries.
Roca denied all accusations muttering to deputies, “I did what I had to do to control her.”
Roca is a convicted felon with a prior conviction of sexual battery.
