A 53-year-old Brooksville man is facing abuse charges after being accused of beating his double amputee roommate.

Zane Allen Bloomer was arrested and charged with aggravated abuse on a disabled adult Saturday after an altercation broke out at his apartment on Main Street.

Police say Bloomer and his female roommate, whose name has not been released, were involved in a violent altercation Saturday morning at 3:35 a.m.

The victim sustained minor lacerations to her head but refused medical treatment.

Bloomer is being held at the Hernando County Jail on a $10,000.00 bond.
