A man who assaulted a woman after she tried to break up with him on Sunday faces sexual battery and false imprisonment charges, police said.
Robert Hays, 32, of Coral Springs, and the woman had met a week earlier through an online dating website, according to an arrest report.
The woman met Hays outside his apartment on Sunday and told him she didn’t want to continue dating. He snatched her purse and went inside, the report said.
When she followed him into the apartment, he locked the door. Although she pushed an alert button on her key, Hays assaulted her in a hallway and again on the bed, according to the report.
The woman managed to escape and alert police. Hays told authorities that the two had consensual sex. He was booked into the Broward Main Jail and bond was set at $50,000.
