With his face and neck covered in crude prison-yard tattoos, 33-year-old Dade City resident Fidel Manual Valle is already intimidating. So, it was downright terrifying when he held a knife to a Pasco County woman and demanded that she worship the devil.
Valle of 15221 Davis Loop, was arrested Tuesday, June 26, and charged with aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
The victim told sheriff’s deputies that, on June 19, she and another person were riding in a truck with Valle when he became inexplicably angry and began yelling at her, telling her to worship Satan. When she refused, she said Valle pulled out a knife and held it against her side.
He then drove her and the other person to a local boat ramp where he reportedly made the other person get out of the truck while he prayed to Satan and continued to demand that the victim join him in prayer.
The victim said she was in fear for her life.
