Report: Woman attempts to run over boyfriend
PORT CHARLOTTE — Authorities arrested a local woman Thursday after she allegedly tried to run over her boyfriend with a Ford Excursion SUV, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report.
Nellie Angelica Roman, 37, of the 18300 block of Yale Avenue, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill.
According to the report, Roman returned home from an area bar and suspected her boyfriend was talking with another woman on the phone. When she confronted her boyfriend, he left Roman’s residence and started walking back to his own residence.
Roman began following her boyfriend in her SUV, the report states, and he then became alarmed and started cutting through different properties in an effort to avoid Roman.
When the boyfriend reached a home located on the 18400 block of Timothy Avenue, he started to cut through the yard when Roman allegedly began driving toward him at a very high rate of speed. The boyfriend jumped over a fence to protect himself from being hit, but Roman continued driving and smashed through the fence, with the vehicle coming to rest on top of it, the report shows.
Roman allegedly told deputies that her boyfriend became physically abusive toward her after she returned from the area bar, and that she drove away hoping to escape him. Authorities didn’t believe Roman’s tale, and she was arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail. She was released Friday after posting $4,500 bond.

Man charged with burglary, battery over phone
NORTH PORT — A Port Charlotte man has been charged with two counts of burglary with battery over a phone, according to a North Port police report.
The report states officers responded to an apartment on the 3900 block of South Sumter Boulevard just before 9:15 p.m. Thursday and met with the victims, a 31-year-old woman and a 42-year-old man. The male victim told police he went to his neighbor’s apartment and borrowed a telephone from Kenneth Raymond Campbell, 54, of the 17900 block of Murdock Circle, Port Charlotte, who was at the neighbor’s apartment. The man was back in his apartment when Campbell knocked on the door and asked for the phone back.
The female victim answered the door, and the male victim told officers Campbell was very angry, yelling at the woman. According to the report, the female victim said Campbell cursed and threatened to beat the male victim, and that Campbell pushed his way into the apartment and mentioned a firearm. The male victim also reportedly heard Campbell mention something about a gun.
A woman who lives opposite the victims told police she heard yelling, and when she opened her door, saw Campbell force his way into the victim’s apartment still yelling about a phone. She pulled Campbell out of the apartment at the same time the female victim was pushing him out, the report shows. The witness told Campbell to go home, and he reportedly went into the next apartment.
The report states Campbell admitted to loaning the male victim a phone and going into the apartment uninvited to retrieve it, but said he only went into the apartment after the female victim pushed him.
Campbell was charged with two counts of burglary with assault or battery. He remained at the Sarasota County Jail on $15,000 bond.
