Bond is set at $125,000 for a Hollywood man accused of repeatedly beating and raping a woman while holding her captive in an apartment for four days, police said.
Robert James Cox, 47, was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexual battery, felony battery and false imprisonment, jail records show.
The accuser was missing a tooth, had two black eyes, bruised arms and legs, and a cut on her buttocks from a sharp object that had been thrown at her, police noted in their report.
The woman told detectives she had been in a relationship with Cox for six months and it had become intimate during the last two. But, she said, he became increasingly overbearing and controlling, so she began making excuses to avoid having sex with him, according to the arrest report.
The sexual assaults began Jan. 31 when Cox raped the woman, telling her that he owned her, the report stated.
Cox told the victim he would "gut her like a pig and hang her until she bleeds out" if she reported the rapes, detectives said.
Between Saturday and Tuesday, Cox would not let her leave the apartment unless accompanied by him. He was verbally and physically abusive, allowed her to wear only underwear, and pushed her out of bed onto the floor on one occasion. When she grabbed a blanket to stay warm, Cox hit her in the mouth and knocked out a front tooth, the arrest report stated.
"If you touch me again I will kill you b---- and slit you like a pig," the woman quoted Cox as saying. "I will dissect you and it will be a slow death. I will tie you to a ceiling fan and torture you," the police report stated.
On Monday, Cox took the woman to a Dania Beach hotel and made her shower while he washed her genitalia, police said. The woman said she could not escape and feared for her life because Cox was a martial artist who had repeatedly threatened to harm her and her family, the report stated. They then returned to the apartment.
The next day, Cox kicked the woman out after an argument; she went to a friend for help. The friend took her to the police station. Officers were waiting for Cox outside the apartment Wednesday. He surrendered without incident, police said.
