Man charged with burglary, battery on ex-girlfriend

A Marathon man was arrested Saturday, charged with entering his ex-girlfriend’s house without permission and grabbing her.

The victim called the Sheriff’s Office as her ex-boyfriend, 30 year old Ruben Torres, was entering her home through the bedroom window at 5:30 a.m. She told arriving deputies she’d seen him at a bar earlier in the evening and he’d tried to talk to her. She said she went home with another man and Torres showed up there. She said he knocked on the door, then walked around the house knocking on the underside of the house with a stick.

Eventually, he managed to get a bedroom window open and climbed inside. She said he grabbed her, said “I got you,” then climbed back out the window and fled the scene before deputies arrived. The victim was on the phone with Sheriff’s dispatchers who overheard what he said to her.

Deputy Rosa DiGiovanni located Torres later in the morning at a home on Yellowtail Drive in Marathon. Torres was arrested. He was charged with burglary and battery and he was booked into jail.
