Pensacola, FL – Man Arrested After Holding Prostitute Hostage in Vehicle

July 9, 2019

Pensacola, FL (July 9, 2019) – Police arrested a man for allegedly soliciting a prostitute and then holding that same woman hostage when she refused to have sex with him.

The man has been identified as 58-year-old David Lee Montgomery of Pensacola, who police say was officially arrested on July 2 and charged with procuring a prostitute, kidnapping, and aggravated assault.

The woman met Montgomery at a gas station and got in his 2007 Ford Explorer. Montgomery asked the woman if she wanted to have sex, and she told him that she would for $20. They then drove to a patch of woods around Idlewood Drive.

The woman told deputies that she told Montgomery, while there, that he had permission to ‘feel her up’ even though he kept begging her for sex and she kept telling him no.

Montgomery then paid the woman $20 and she tried to leave his vehicle, but he would not allow her to. He reached into the back of the vehicle and pulled out a wooden board with nails in it and threatened to hurt her. The woman told law enforcement that she was scared for her life.

Montgomery has since been booked and remains in custody.
