Fort Walton Beach, FL (June 3, 2019) – A man was arrested by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office in connection with the battery of a girlfriend that he met online.
28-year-old Blaise Khamisi Albertie Chamberlain was arrested after the victim contacted deputies on Thursday morning. She claimed that Chamberlain had strangled her and struck her in the face with a gun after threatening to kill her. A child was in the backseat at the time of the attack.
The victim claimed that, while the victim was in a moving vehicle, she jumped out. She ran home and banged on the door until somebody was able to help her. She had visible injuries due to the incident.
An adult woman and child were interviewed who lived in the same home as the woman. They told deputies that they saw the suspect repeatedly assault the victim.
Since then, Chamberlain has been arrested on two counts of battery, one count of aggravated battery, and false imprisonment. He is being held without bond at this time.
