SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Deputies arrested a 30-year-old man on Wednesday in Osprey after he allegedly physically and sexually assaulted a woman.

Jordan Ask has been charged with Sexual Battery, Domestic Violence, Kidnapping and Strangulation.

Deputies say on Monday, Ask was at a bar with a woman and they got into an argument. They left separately but several hours later she went to Ask’s home on the 100 block of Revolution Way in Osprey, where she occasionally stayed with Ask.

That’s when deputies say the argument restarted and turned physical. Deputies say Ask punched the victim in the face multiple times, knocking her to the ground, then stomped on her head, neck and stomach before choking her.

The victim attempted to leave, but deputies say he pulled her back, ripping her purse. Deputies say Ask then demanded the victim have sex with him and threatened to beat her some more if she didn’t agree. The victim told deputies that she agreed out of fear of being hit again and had sex with Ask on a couch in the living room.

Once she was able to leave, the victim went to Venice Regional Hospital. Deputies say she had bruises on her arms and legs, marks around her neck from being choked, two black eyes and swelling to her face and mouth. She was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where a sexual assault kit was performed.

Deputies took Ask into custody on Tuesday and interviewed him. They say Ask denied any physical altercation but told deputies he and the victim had consensual sex.

Deputies say Ask had swelling on his left hand consistent with swelling that would happen from punching something.

Ask is currently free on bond.
