MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A north Miami-Dade man is accused of terrorizing his girlfriend after having a dream that she cheated on him.
Monroe County Sheriff’s officials said Carlos Gascon, 27, held his girlfriend captive for the entire day at her Summerland Key home.
The woman was able to call for help Friday after Gascon passed out.
Monroe County Sheriff’s spokesperson Becky Herrin said Gascon beat, slashed her leg with a knife, poured hot coffee on her and even threatened to kill her while holding a knife to her throat.
Herrin also said Gascon picked up his dog and slammed it onto the ground then put his food on the dog’s neck.
Gascon is being held on a $265,000 bond.
He was charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, domestic battery by strangulation, battery, false imprisonment, and animal cruelty.
