Suspect Flees, Caught Near Florida Atlantic University Campus
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A pregnant woman in an argument with her boyfriend pulled off of I-95 in Boca Raton Wednesday and into the Mobil gas station at 690 West Glades Road — near Florida Atlantic University — where the boyfriend allegedly struck her multiple times with a closed fist.
The woman sustained injuries to her head and face.
The boyfriend — Damonte Johnson — then fled on foot, leading to a significant Boca Raton Police response. Tactical team officers found Johnson near the FAU. The police report states he refused to discuss the attack.
Johnson was arrested and charged with “aggravated battery on a pregnant woman.” He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. Johnson was released later in the day on his own recognizance.
Jail records report Johnson’s home address as being in the 1800 block of NW 31st Avenue in Lauderhill.
