BOCA RATON, FL ( — “Bellman! Do you need help?!” That’s how a Bellman at a Boca hotel apparently broke up a violent altercation between 42-year-old Roland Stoever of Water Street in New York City and his “girlfriend of five years and mother of his child” according to a police report.

“Roland placed both hands on my neck and picked me up by the neck and slammed me on the bed,” said the victim to police. She shouted, “Help, he is choking me.”

The girlfriend’s screams led to hotel staff to summon police who “observed red marks to her neck consistent with her accounts of what happened.”

Stoever and the victim were, according to the report, drinking prior to the altercation. They decided to sleep in separate rooms, but Stoever allegedly became upset when his girlfriend wanted to take their toddler out of the hotel. He told police that the argument never became violent.

Stoever was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a Battery charge and was released the next day, only to be REARRESTED hours later for violating a domestic violence order for him to stay away from the victim.
