Leon Wiggins Arrested For Strangling Bronson Woman


Date:                October 22, 2009

Bronson, Florida- On October 22, 2009 Deputy Ella Anderson arrested Leon Wiggins for felony battery and he was transported to the Levy County Jail.

The victim reported that she went to 450 Alvin Road in Bronson to purchase drugs from Wiggins on October 22, 2009 around two in the morning.  Upon arriving Wiggins wanted to exchange drugs for sex and the victim refused.  This infuriated Wiggins and threw the victim on the ground and started strangling her with both hands.  The victim reported that she fought Wiggins and he covered her nose and mouth and she lost unconscious on two different occasions.  The victim was able to free herself from Wiggins and fled the scene on foot.  Deputy Anderson observed bruising around the victim's throat, face and shoulders and she was upset.

Patrol deputies located Wiggins at 550 Hurst Street in Bronson sleeping in a vehicle and he was arrested without incident.
