Johnnie Lee Henderson, 73-year old man from Gainesville (Florida), is accused of beating his female roommate and burning her with an iron during a fight on Wednesday.
According to a Gainesville Police Department report, Henderson and his roommate had a fight Wednesday when Henderson allegedly grabbed the victim and forced her into his room.
There, he allegedly tore off her clothes and slapped the woman many times, police said.
When the victim attempted to leave, he grabbed her by her hair and forced her back into his room, according to the report.
Once she was back in his room, he then allegedly burned her on the elbow with a hot clothes iron before letting the victim get up, according to the report. She escaped the residence completely naked and called law enforcement, police said.
According to the report, Henderson told police he was just “messing” with the victim and that she flailed her arms around, causing the burn.
He is currently facing aggravated battery and false imprisonment charges.
