An Ocala man died Saturday after he allegedly broke into a home naked and bit a woman before being taken to a hospital.

  • People inside home said naked man came inside without permission
  • The man allegedly bit one of the adult females inside the home
  • The man was taken to a hospital, where he died, deputies said

James Raines, 40, is accused of breaking into a home along Northeast 45th Street in Ocala. The Marion County Sheriff's Office received a call at 4:26 a.m. about a disturbance at the home. When deputies arrived, they found Raines being held down in a bedroom by another man.

Deputies said they observed Raines naked and unresponsive. First aid was provided, and Raines was transported to an area hospital, where he died.

During the investigation, two men and a woman told deputies that Raines came into the home naked without permission. They told deputies Raines was "out of control and attacked the individuals inside the home," deputies said.

The people inside the home believed Raines was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The people inside the home told deputies they defended themselves against Raines, and deputies observed a bite mark on one of the women.

Deputies identified Raines as someone who lives in the area and went to his home. While there, another woman was located, who also appeared to be under the influence of a substance. She needed medical treatment.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 352-732-9111.
