Deputies seek Riverview man accused of throwing boiling grease on girlfriend

RIVERVIEW — Hillsborough sheriff's deputies are searching for a man suspected of throwing a pot of boiling grease on his girlfriend.

The Sheriff's Office has obtained a warrant for Tracy Deshane Robinson, 43, whom they say threw grease on his girlfriend on July 5, burning her face, chest, arms and legs.

Robinson, who is also known as "Demetrius Robinson" or "D," has warrants for felony domestic violence battery by strangulation, as well as a warrant for aggravated battery with great bodily harm in the July 5 incident.

So far, authorities in Hillsborough and surrounding counties have not been able to track him down, and now they're asking for the public's help.

Robinson lives at 10315 Zackary Circle, Unit 145, in Riverview. He is 6 feet tall, 190 pounds and has a tattoo on his back that reads "Gigolo," the Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies are asking anyone with information to call the Hills­borough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
