A Fort Walton Beach man is in jail after allegedly smoking methamphetamine and holding his girlfriend against her will while he attacked their mattress.
Felipe Oquendo, 37, is charged with false imprisonment and possession of drug
paraphernalia in connection with an incident early Friday morning.
Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the home on Willow Bend
Boulevard around 1:10 a.m. Friday. The caller said Oquendo had started acting erratically and accused her of cheating on him with a man in the mattress.

She claimed Oquendo had stabbed the mattress with a bedpost, then ripped it apart
with his hands. He then locked the bedroom door and refused to let the woman leave, but she was able to escape while he was preoccupied with the mattress, according to an arrest report.
When deputies arrived, Oquendo reportedly told them he had felt the mattress moving. He said had asked his girlfriend to help him figure out what was happening, but had not prevented her from leaving, according to the report.
Oquendo told OCSO deputies he was fighting the man in the mattress, holding him
down when they arrived, but the man then slipped out and left.
He admitted to smoking methamphetamine earlier in the day, and deputies found a glass pipe in his possession they believed was used for narcotics.
Oquendo was taken into custody and booked into Okaloosa County Jail.
