A Florida woman faces accusations she cut another woman’s neck with a knife outside of Crystal River before she was apprehended in Marion County at the end of a vehicle chase.
Citrus County Sheriff’s Office authorities on June 29, transported 44-year-old Rebecca Ranee Roblero Perez from Marion County’s jail to the Citrus County Detention Facility, where they arrested her on a warrant charging her with attempted first-degree murder.
According to Roblero Perez’s arrest affidavit, obtained, sheriff’s office deputies responded June 21 to a stabbed woman at a house off of West Avocado Street.
Before deputies arrived, the woman’s boyfriend drove her to Bayfront Health Seven Rivers to be treated for a cut several inches long to left of her throat.
Deputies also identified Roblero Perez, who is the mother of the woman’s boyfriend, as their suspect.
Roblero Perez and an unidentified man drove away from the house after the alleged stabbing, according to the arrest affidavit.
Deputies tried to pull them over near North Lecanto Highway and West Norvell Bryant Highway, but the duo’s vehicle fled into Marion County, where Roblero Perez and her driver were taken into custody.
A sheriff’s office detective later interviewed the injured woman in an emergency room.
According to the affidavit, the woman said Roblero Perez came over intoxicated, unannounced and with the unknown man. She said Roblero Perez was acting hostile and threatened to take her own life.
Roblero Perez’s son told the detective he saw his mother pick up a fruit knife from the kitchen before she went outside, asking the woman to join her.
Once outside, Roblero Perez fell over, prompting her son and the woman to help her up.
When Roblero Perez got to her feet, according to the affidavit, she acted as if she was going to hug the woman but reached out with the knife instead to cut the woman’s neck.
Roblero Perez’s bond was set at $20,000, per her warrant.
