A Camden man has been charged with false imprisonment and second degree domestic battery after an alleged altercation with his ex-girlfriend, according the the Camden Police Department.

An incident report from CPD states that a warrant for domestic battery and false imprisonment has been issued for Jacob Goza, 42, of Camden by Judge David Graham.

According to the police report, on Oct. 8, a CPD officer responded to Ouachita County Medical Center to speak with a woman in reference to a domestic dispute.

The woman told the officer that Goza contacted her wanting to "talk about their issues" and she agreed to meet him at the Valero gas station on Adams, according to the CPD; she said once she arrived at the gas station, Goza took her keys and tried to pull her out of her vehicle, grabbing her shirt, hair and arms. She told the officer she started to scream and Goza left.

However, according to the report, Goza returned, so the woman began to call 911 before noticing an officer stopped at a nearby red light; she then hung up the call and hid her phone. She said Goza left again and she was approached by the officer she saw. According to police, she told the officer she would call a friend and that she did not want to file a report over the keys Goza allegedly took.

Goza returned once again, the woman told police, promising to bring her keys back; however, she said, when he arrived, Goza pulled her into his truck, drove her to a residence outside of Camden and forced her into the house. According to the report, she told police Goza hit her with a glass object on her head and kicked her in the ribs several times, resulting in two broken ribs.

An order of protection for the woman against Goza has been issued.

Goza has previous arrests for theft of property, breaking and entering, as well as possession of controlled substances.

Goza's first appearance before Judge Hamilton Singleton was Friday afternoon. He was being held Friday afternoon at the Ouachita County Detention Center on a $15,000 cash bond.
