Johnathan Recinos Urbina, 33

Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested suspect Johnathan Recinos Urbina, 33, near the Naples Manor community after he was accused of breaking into a woman’s home Sunday and later assaulting her outside.

The suspect is also accused of leading deputies on a foot chase before being arrested.

According to the CCSO report, around midnight, a woman got out of the shower and saw her boyfriend, Recinos, on the couch with her phone. Remembering that her door was locked, she was wondering how he got in.

She told investigators there was a knife on the floor near her door and pry marks indicating forced entry.

Recinos and the woman got into an argument over the phone because Recinos believed she was texting other men. Recinos told her to come out and get her phone.

Recinos forced the victim into his pickup truck and began to drive away. He then stopped on Tamami Trail East, pushed her out of the vehicle, and between obscenities, threatened to kill her.

The report says Recinos strangled her. Then, he became distracted when his phone rang and the victim was able to break free to call 911.

She had multiple cuts and bruises on her neck and arms. The suspect’s wife arrived and took the vehicle from the scene. After asking to “relieve himself in the bushes” just off the road, Recinos tried to run away and headed north.

About an hour later, a helicopter spotted Recinos in a wooded area near Dixie Drive and Confederate Drive. While waiting for the police van, Recinos also threatened the officers on scene.

Recinos faces charges of armed burglary, kidnapping, battery by strangulation, resisting an officer without violence, assault, and petty theft.

Recinos is in custody at the Collier County jail.
