After being forced against her will inside a residence, the Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies rescued the victim, but not without a fight with the suspect.
On February 7, at 11:11 p.m., BSO deputies responded to a call at the 5000 block of Northwest 36th Street in Lauderdale Lakes and located a witness who saw a man drag a female into an apartment.
BSO deputies immediately approached the apartment and knocked on the door announcing their presence. After repeated attempts to contact the occupants inside without a response and hearing people inside, deputies made entry, fearing the female inside was in immediate danger.
After deputies kicked the door in, they located Courtney Maynard, 24, inside a bathroom holding the victim down against her will with what appeared to be bruising on both of her eyes and blood on her face.
Deputies attempted to detain Maynard but he resisted arrest by striking a deputy in the chin before being taken into custody without further incident.
The victim was transported to Broward Health Medical Center for her injuries and was released.
