Two men have now been charged in the sexual battery of a woman who believes she was drugged before being assaulted.
36-year old Ricardo Juan Sanchez-Alvarez of 85 Hackberry Way in Santa Rosa Beach and 33-year old Tamer Egemen Duman of 280 Vining’s Way in Destin are charged with Sexual Battery When the Victim is Physically Helpless to Resist.
The victim stated to Law Enforcement the two men provided her with a glass of wine and two mixed drinks during the night of November 21st and early morning hours of November 22nd in 2015.
The victim stated they went to two different popular Destin night clubs during the night. She then woke up face down, nauseous and vomiting in a Destin hotel room.
The victim stated she felt like she was in a fog and was bruised and sore. Because of this she went to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast to have a sexual battery kit completed.
Investigators with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office obtained a video from the hotel the night of the incident which depicts the two men leading the victim by her hands through the lobby as she stumbles as sways.
The victim said she had never been in a romantic relationship with either defendant, did not give consent for any sexual act nor agree to knowingly go to a hotel.
Due to the graphic nature of the details the Crestview Broadcasting Company has decided not to publish the arrest reports.
