Last night, Ofc. Lowery was traveling on North Woodland Blvd when she witnessed a male dragging a female in a parking lot towards his vehicle. Upon making contact, Ofc. Lowery learned that the female had been beaten and threatened with a knife inside the vehicle which she was trying to get away from when Ofc. Lowery saw her being dragged back towards the vehicle.
The male, identified as Marcos Alcantar, was arrested and charged with:
- Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
- False imprisonment
- Battery causing bodily harm
He is being held with no bond at the Volusia County Branch Jail.
Without Ofc. Lowery’s proactive patrol of her zone, this incident could have escalated to be much worse. The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
