A man faces felony battery that causes bodily harm and disability charges following a brutal attack on a woman in Margate.

On September 2, the Margate Police Department responded to a 911 call from a victim with severe injuries violently attacked and doused in a mysterious fluid.

According to the police records detailing the chaotic scene, upon arrival, officers found the victim in her rented room, lying on the floor, and bleeding profusely from her legs. 

According to the victim’s statement, the attack followed a heated verbal altercation with her alleged assailant, later identified as Salvatore Lombardi, 44,  that eventually turned physical. She told officers Lombardi used an object to cut her, leaving her with three deep lacerations on her left leg, right knee, and left hand. 

The victim also told officers that Lombardi doused her with an unknown liquid substance before the stabbing, pouring it over her head to disorient her. 

Emergency medical personnel were called to the scene and transported the victim to HCA Florida Northwest Hospital for immediate medical attention. 

Officers quickly apprehended Lombardi and took him into custody for questioning. During a background check, it was revealed he was already on probation for a previous conviction related to robbery with a deadly weapon. 

Lombardi was also transported to HCA Florida Northwest Hospital for medical clearance before being taken to the Broward County Main Jail.
