MARATHON, Fla. – A Marathon man was arrested early Friday morning after he broke into his ex-girlfriend's home and hit her in the face, Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

Quentin Williams, 40, faces charges of burglary, battery and criminal mischief.

Herrin said deputies were called to Williams' ex-girlfriend's home on 41st Street several times early Friday morning.

Just before 2 a.m., she called 911 the first time to report that Williams had threatened to throw a rock through her window. She told deputies that she and Williams had broken up in April, but she had been hanging out with him when he began to "act crazy" and threaten her.

By the time deputies arrived, Williams was gone, Herrin said.

The ex-girlfriend called deputies again about 2:30 a.m. after she said Williams had broken her front door to get inside and hit her in the face. Once again, Williams was gone by the time deputies arrived.

Deputies were called back a final time about two hours later after the woman's son thought he saw Williams outside. This time, deputies found Williams a block away on 42nd Street, Herrin said.
