Sex Denial Battery

APRIL 25--After her live-in boyfriend repeatedly rebuffed demands to have sex, a Florida woman allegedly attacked the man in their bedroom, chased him out of the house, and broke the windshield on his truck, police report.

Stacey Ann Ortiz, a 34-year-old waitress, was busted on a misdemeanor battery charge following the confrontation last Wednesday morning at the Port St. Lucie residence the couple has shared for the last seven months.

As detailed in a Port St. Lucie Police Department report, Ortiz and her beau, 27, quarreled after returning home from a night of drinking at a pal’s house. While Ortiz sought to have sex, her boyfriend wanted to “lie in bed and watch TV.”

After the victim repeatedly turned down Ortiz’s sex entreaties, matters turned physical, according to police. Ortiz allegedly attacked the victim, who told cops that “in an effort to get away from her he ran down stairs and out the garage.” Ortiz, the victim added, chased after him.

At this point, the man called 911 to report that “his girlfriend was chasing him down the street and was attacking him.” When cops arrived, the victim was “only wearing his underwear” and had a cut on his forehead and several scratches on his chest.

Ortiz, pictured in the above mug shot, told police that she got into a “verbal argument which escalated into a physical argument,” adding that her boyfriend “head butted” her during the dispute. Ortiz--who copped to using a metal mop handle to break the windshield of her boyfriend’s truck--said she chased the victim down the street because she was “mad.” Ortiz, however, declined to discuss what triggered the couple’s argument.

Since cops judged Ortiz the “primary aggressor,” she was collared on a domestic battery charge and booked into the St. Lucie County jail. Free on her own recognizance, Ortiz is scheduled to be arraigned in Circuit Court on May 8. (1 page)
