Levy County deputies responded to a domestic disturbance in the normally peaceful town of Rosewood on July 20, 2023. The incident emerged from a heated argument between a victim and Marshall Dimick (born December 31, 1967), a resident of Rosewood with a prior felony conviction.
According to statements obtained by the deputies, the victim recounted a harrowing encounter with Dimick.
During the altercation, Dimick shockingly immersed the victim’s head into a vat of a tar-like substance commonly used for treating clam and oyster bags.
In an alarming escalation of violence, he brandished a shotgun, threatening the victim’s life, and choked her to the brink of unconsciousness.
Despite being a convicted felon and barred from possessing firearms, he had concealed several guns within the residence before law enforcement arrived.
Fortunately, diligent efforts by the investigating team led to the successful recovery of the firearms from a neighboring property.
He is now facing a slew of charges, which include aggravated battery, aggravated assault with a firearm, and four counts of firearm possession by a convicted felon.
The tar-like substance caused chemical burns on her face and arms, prompting the responders to rush the victim to a nearby local hospital for treatment.
Marshall Dimick is currently in custody at the Levy County Detention Center, on $550,000.00 bail.
Authorities are actively urging anyone with information related to this incident or any potential additional victims to come forward and cooperate with the ongoing investigation.
