An officer responded to 1806 Timber Ridge Circle regarding a domestic battery wherein the victim’s boyfriend, later identified as 53-year-old Gordon Daniel Kujava, pulled her hair around 8:25 a.m. Wednesday, according to an arrest report from the Leesburg Police Department. 

Upon arrival, the officer met with the victim who was already talking to another officer near the main office. She advised that Kujava, her boyfriend of more than 11 years, woke up in an irritable mood. He began shouting at her about various topics, which she could not provide, while taking her to the restroom in his van, the report said. 

Kujava then grabbed the victim’s hair and began pulling it. She told him to let go, but he would not. As a result, she grabbed a small knife that was stowed in the side pocket of the passenger door and threatened him with it by stating she would be forced to use it if he did not let go. He ultimately let her go, the report said. 

The victim would not give a written statement about the incident or allow photographs to be taken of her and her hair. However, because of her verbal statements regarding what happened, Kujava was placed under arrest. He was secured in handcuffs and placed in the back of a patrol vehicle to be taken to the LPD for booking, the report said. 

The Washington native was charged with simple battery (domestic) and transported to Lake County Jail. He was released after posting $1,000 bond.
