Donovan Nicholas Hall, 19, of 1604 Thompson Road was arrested Sunday night on charges of armed sexual battery, burglary and kidnapping.

LITHIA — A 19-year-old man was arrested Sunday night, accused of armed sexual battery, burglary and kidnapping a woman he knows.

On Jan. 10, deputies said Donovan Nicholas Hall, of 1604 Thompson Road, went to the woman's home, cut the screen on an unlocked window and confronted the woman, who had been sleeping on her couch.

Deputies said Hall threatened to hurt her with a baseball bat if she didn't leave with him. He sexually assaulted her in a shed outside and in a vacant home down the street, deputies said.

Then deputies said Hall forced the woman to walk with him to a store to buy a drink and to a restaurant to eat.

At the restaurant, the woman borrowed someone's cell phone and called her father. When her father showed up, deputies said Hall left.

A warrant was issued for Hall's arrest, and deputies found him Sunday near Bryant and Thompson roads.

Hall was being held at the Hillsborough County Jail without bail.

According to jail records, he has been arrested twice before in Hillsborough, on charges including burglary, grand theft and drug possession.
