David Benes Jail Booking
Holiday, FL (The Weekly Vice) - David Benes, a 54-year-old Florida man, has been jailed after he allegedly held down his 80-year-old girlfriend and attempted to exorcise the devil out of her.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to a central Florida residence early last week after an 80-year-old woman reported that she had been attacked by her live-in boyfriend.
Arriving deputies spoke with the victim who stated that her boyfriend of three years physically held her down in an attempt to perform an exorcism on her.
The victim went on to say she was asleep earlier that day when Benes jumped on top of her and forcefully held her down while attempting the exorcism. She also stated that Benes had assaulted her multiple times in the past for the same purpose - all while refusing to let her leave the house.
Investigators say Benes took the victim's car keys, dismantled the garage door opener and took the battery out of her cell phone in an effort to prevent her from leaving the residence or contacting police.
Deputies tried to question Benes, however he appeared to be highly intoxicated and was unable to give clear replies. At one point, Benes stated that he was too intoxicated to remember anything about the incident. At another point, Benes stated that his 80-year-old girlfriend assaulted him.
Deputies took Benes into custody after noting multiple bruise and scratch marks on the victim's arms that were consistent with her version of what took place.
Benes was booked into the Pasco County Jail and charged with battery on a person 65 years of age or older, false imprisonment and intimidation of a witness.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Benes was previously charged with domestic violence in August, 2013 and April 2012.
