A former certified nursing assistant at Buffalo Crossings in The Villages who was once accused of ripping off a wheelchair-bound patient found himself behind bars Saturday after a nasty battle with his lady friend at the Summerfield Wal-Mart.
Marion County sheriff’s deputies were called to the store, located at 17961 S U.S. Hwy. 27/441, and when they arrived, a woman told them that she and 33-year-old Hassan Ismail Osman had gotten into a verbal altercation after going to Wal-Mart to pick up some last-minute supplies. She said they had been arguing and Osman was yelling at her and calling her “explicit” names as they walked through the store.
The woman said she felt something hit her in the back of the head and she heard Osman say, “You are so lucky that missed you.” She then discovered her hair had a piece of gum in it, a sheriff’s office report states.
The woman said she walked outside to her vehicle in the parking lot and Osman followed her outside and continued to scream at her. She claimed that as she was getting into her vehicle, Osman grabbed her out of the vehicle by her shoulders and shook her. She said she screamed, “Let go of me!” and several people nearby stared at them until Osman let her go, the report says.
The woman said she went to a nearby Dollar Tree store but Osman continued to call her names. She said he eventually left her alone and she got into her vehicle and left the Wal-Mart parking lot to head to her residence.
Deputies noted that the woman had a piece of green gum tangled in her hair. They said they didn’t see any marks on her arms and she didn’t need medical attention, the report says.
The woman told deputies that Osman left Wal-Mart walking northbound on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 toward his mother’s house, located on SE 104th Avenue in Summerfield. Deputies eventually located him at his residence and after being read his rights, he admitted to throwing the gum and striking the woman in the back of the head, the report says.
Osman told deputies “he was playing and didn’t mean to.” He admitted arguing with the woman but denied calling her names or grabbing her out of the vehicle. He said that after the woman left Wal-Mart, he called his mother to come pick him up and take him home, the report says.
Osman was transported to the Marion County Jail and charged with domestic battery (second or subsequent offense). He was released Sunday night on $1,000 bond and is due in court April 21 at 9 a.m. to answer to the charge.
Osman was arrested in April 2018 while working as a certified nursing assistant at Buffalo Crossings Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center after allegedly stealing money from a wheelchair-bound patient. He was caught on video placing rubber gloves on his hands and removing $70 in cash from a black checkbook belonging to the patient at the facility on County Road 466 in The Villages, according to a Sumter County Sheriff’s Office report.
In July 2018, Osman was placed on probation for six months after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of petit theft after his attorney got a felony charge of exploitation of the elderly dismissed. While out on bond, he was arrested by Marion County sheriff’s deputies on a charge of domestic battery. In that case, he was sentenced to 60 days in jail with credit for 43 days served. He also was ordered to attend a 12-week parenting class at his own expense.
