OCALA, Fla. (WESH/LEX 18) — A Kentucky doctor and two others have been arrested in connection to an alleged assault and false imprisonment at a Florida hotel.
Authorities say the incident happened around 6 p.m. Friday at the Holiday Inn on Southwest 38th Avenue.
Police told LEX 18 sister station WESH they received multiple calls that a woman was begging for help from a hotel balcony. Witnesses told authorities the woman claimed she was being held against her will.
At the scene, authorities say they found a 25-year-old woman severely beaten and suffering from head trauma.
According to WESH, officers arrested 65-year-old Morris Beebe, of London, Kentucky; 37-year-old Stacy Gonzalez, and 27-year-old Devon McDougal-Stegall.
Beebe is charged with principal to false imprisonment. Gonzalez and McDougal-Stegall are charged with aggravated battery and false imprisonment.
Police say this was not a random attack and that the suspects and victim knew each other.
LEX 18 reached out to Baptist Health in Corbin, which employs Beebe.
"We have no comment," said a hospital spokesperson. "Thank you."
