Northwest Florida

OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — A man is being held on false imprisonment and drug charges in Okaloosa County.

Deputies responded to a home on Willow Bend around 1:10 a.m. Friday, April 26. They say 37-year-old Felipe Oquendo thought his girlfriend was cheating on him with a man inside the mattress so he locked the bedroom door and would not allow his girlfriend to leave. His girlfriend says Oquendo began acting erratic stabbing the mattress with a bedpost and using his hands to attack the mattress in an attempt to find the man he believed was inside. 

While he was moving the mattress around she was able to unlock the door and escape.

Oquendo told OCSO deputies he was fighting the man in the mattress, holding him down when they arrived, but the man then slipped out and left. Oquendo admitted to deputies he was under the influence of methamphetamine.

Oquendo is charged with false imprisonment and possession of drug paraphernalia.
