Freddy Alberto Elias of Sunrise, Florida was arrested on January 8 for allegedly choking his girlfriend, branding her with fork, and attempting to “waterboard” her in the shower with a towel and water. Elias, 27, faces charges for attempted murder, false imprisonment, domestic battery, and aggravated battery. He is being held at Broward Main Jail without bond. New sources did not name an attorney for Elias.
According to the affidavit, Elias knocked at the back door of his girlfriend’s home at 3 a.m. on January 3.

Dotto is being held at Palm Beach County Jail without bond. The press did not specify if he has acquired the services of a private attorney.
Booker T. Roberts of Fort Lauderdale, Florida was arrested earlier this month for an attempted murder charge. Roberts, 34, allegedly shot Alphonso Palmer in the stomach outside a Kwik Stop Food Store in Lauderhill on December 12, 2015.
