Tampa man accused of beating, raping girlfriend

She kicked holes in the bedroom wall, broke a window, ran out the door and called police.

She said her boyfriend of six months brutally raped her, beat her up and threatened to kill her with a butcher knife from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Monday.

Police arrested Kimwana Juan Hamilton, 33, of 1601 E River Cove St., at 8723 N Brooks St. around 10 p.m.

The unidentified woman was hospitalized.

Hamilton was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail, where he remains without bail. He was charged with armed sexual battery, false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery.

Hamilton was previously sentenced to 15 years on attempted second-degree murder charges in 1992. He was released in 2000, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. He was jailed again four years later for violating his probation when an officer charged him with driving under the influence, records from the Hillsborough County Jail show. He was released in 2007.
