A 38-year-old Ocala man was arrested after he got into an argument with a pregnant victim and he allegedly punched her multiple times in the face.

According to the victim, she was in a relationship with Dempsey, and they lived together with the victim’s child. The victim advised that Dempsey was also aware of her current pregnancy.

On March 13, the victim arrived home from work at around 7:30 p.m. She stated that Dempsey was upset that her child was not potty trained, and this led to an argument.

While the argument continued, the victim advised that she entered her vehicle on the driver’s side and Dempsey sat in the front passenger’s seat. Dempsey then allegedly grabbed her hair and began punching her in the head.

She told the deputy that Dempsey shoved her head down near the passenger’s side floorboard. When Dempsey let her sit upright again, she stated that he punched her approximately three more times.

The victim took photographs of her injuries, and she showed these images to the deputy. According to the MCSO report, the photographs showed a substantial injury to the victim’s right eye, and the deputy observed that there was still visible bruising on the victim’s face.

Dempsey allegedly threatened to harm the victim if she contacted law enforcement. She also mentioned to the deputy that Dempsey had taken her cellphone in the past to prevent her from speaking with friends and family, and he also took her car keys on multiple occasions to keep her from traveling by herself.

On Tuesday, March 22, Dempsey was located, arrested, and transported to Marion County Jail where he is currently being held without bond. He is facing felony charges for domestic battery and aggravated battery on a pregnant victim.

A court date has been scheduled on Tuesday, April 26 at 9 a.m., according to jail records.
