FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Additional charges have been filed against a Weston doctor accused of assaulting his girlfriend.

Broward Sheriff’s deputies were called to 3204 Islewood Avenue, the home of Dr. Rafael Azulay, Sunday morning, August 31st, after receiving call from Marina Rieken. She said her daughter, Angela Glaskin, was “in trouble” and being held against her will by Azulay, her live-in boyfriend.

When deputies arrived at Azulay’s home they knocked on the door and rang the bell but no one answered. When they wandered around to the back of the home, they found Glaskin and Azulay sitting on the patio area. The deputies noted in their report that Glaskin had injuries to her face, including a cut below her right eye, and bruises on her neck, arms, back and legs.

Glaskin did not want to speak to the deputies in front of Azulay, 40, and seemed visibly afraid, according to the report. When they pulled her aside and asked about the injuries, Glaskin reportedly told them that Azulay did hit her but the injuries they noticed were from an accident that had happened a couple of weeks ago. She added that he would give her Percocet to relieve her pain after he hit her, according to the sheriff’s office.

The deputies noted bruising on neck was consistent with possible strangulation.

Glaskin was reportedly visibly upset and crying and told the deputies she just wanted to get her things out of the house.

When Glaskins’ father arrived he told the deputies that he had received several text messages from his daughter which stated she was afraid and being held against her will at the house. He also allegedly had several pictures which she had sent him showing injuries on her body which she said were caused by Azulay.

Azulay was arrested and charged with felony battery which resulted in great bodily harm and domestic battery by strangulation.

During his first bond court appearance on Monday, the judge said he found not enough evidence to substantiate the felony battery charge. On Tuesday, Azulay was back in court where he faced additional charges of false imprisonment and tampering with evidence.
