The two groups were fishing on docks at Ocean Point Condominiums at 10 p.m. They got into an argument which escalated. The victim told Deputy Tony Conde at one point 19 year old Ricky Samper held a knife to her cheek. She said she slapped the knife away and then slapped him in the face. Her boyfriend, who was there with her, said that was when he decided they needed to get away from the situation and call the Sheriff’s Office.
Samper was still in the vicinity when deputies arrived. After interviewing the victim and various witnesses, Samper was arrested. He was charged with aggravated assault and he was taken to jail.
