A 33-year-old man with a history of violence was arrested Sunday after an alleged attack on his girlfriend and her mother.
Wildwood police were called to a home on Young Circle after Randy Jason Szymanski allegedly pushed the mother down a set of three concrete steps. He then punched his girlfriend knocking her on her back, according to an arrest report.
The girlfriend told a police officer that “he does this all the time” when Szymanski gets “angry.”
Szymanski was arrested on two counts of battery and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center. He was initially being held without bond.
Szymanski, who at one point had been living with his parents in the Village of Hadley, had been arrested in 2015 after police were called to The Quarters Apartments in Lady Lake where he stabbed his girlfriend in the stomach with a knife. He pleaded no contest to the charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and was sentenced to four years probation, ordered to stay away from The Quarters Apartments and ordered to undergo 20 hours of anger management counseling.
