Jonathan David Shumen, 33, was arrested last night after a woman reported that she was attacked outside The Standard.
The victim reported that she was walking on the sidewalk when a man approached her and grabbed her shoulder. She said she screamed at him and he walked away, then walked back toward her and said he “rapes and kills girls.” She pepper-sprayed him, then he hit her in the face with an open hand and followed her as she fled. The victim had a video of the incident, and a witness corroborated her account.
Shumen, a resident of GRACE Marketplace, is known to law enforcement, and his First Appearance paperwork notes that he has mental health issues.
Shumen has a long list of recent charges. In November 2021, he was sentenced to 60 days in jail and a year of probation for a misdemeanor charge of indecent exposure of sexual organs. In October 2021, he was sentenced to 180 days in jail (with credit for 112 days served) on a felony burglary charge; both of those incidents happened in June 2021. He was sentenced to 6 months of probation in March 2021 after being arrested in September 2020 for assaulting a business owner on University Avenue. He has been trespassed from both the University of Florida and Santa Fe College’s Blount Center.
