High Springs man arrested after allegedly breaking window at Gainesville Days Inn

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Germikque Robert Doby, 41, was arrested late Friday night and charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and simple assault after he allegedly broke a motel room window while threatening an occupant of the room.

According to the arrest report, Doby allegedly sent a text to the victim that said, “If I have to find you hunt you down I’m going to f*** you up if you just please call me and let’s talk I love.” Doby later found the victim at the Days Inn on SW 13th Street and allegedly pursued her as she ran into a room where she had been staying with another person, the witness in this case.

The witness reported that Doby began to yell aggressively through the door and hit the door, then struck and broke the room’s window with his hand. The witness said that Doby reached through the window and tried to unlock the door from the inside. The witness reportedly confronted Doby with a walking stick, and Doby did not enter the room. During this time, the victim was hiding in the bathroom.

Post Miranda, Doby reportedly admitted to sending the text and said he was “angry emotionally” at the time and sometimes says things to the victim “to get a response.”

Doby is a convicted felon who has served eight state prison sentences since 2001. He was most recently released in June of 2021 on a case in which he was convicted of two counts of simple battery. He is being held on $50,000 bail.
