A Marathon woman says a man “dressed like an Arab” woke her up Monday night, held a gun to her head at her boyfriend’s 20th Street home and forced her to take a “kill pill.”
But her boyfriend told Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputies no one entered the house, and the woman was booked into jail on a misdemeanor charge of filing a false police report.
In addition to saying an “Arab” man forced her to take the pill, Kristin Rutan Skivers, 30, told deputies her boyfriend fought with him and chased him out of the house. She told deputies her boyfriend told her to drink milk to try to make herself throw up, and she then went to a neighbor’s house asking to be taken to Fishermen’s Community Hospital. That’s where Deputy Deobrash Johnson found and questioned her.
Deputies asked her repeatedly if she was sure she was attacked and if she was taking medication that might cause her to have a vivid dream. She insisted the story was true, Deputy Becky Herrin said.
Back at the house, Sgt. Nick Whiteman and Deputy Annette Simo spoke to Skivers’ boyfriend, who said the two of them were sleeping when Skivers woke up and asked him to take her to the hospital. He told her no and went back to sleep. That’s when she went to the neighbor’s house.
