PIKE TWP., Clark County — A Springfield man is facing multiple charges after he allegedly abducted a woman he knows and stomped on her head in Pike Twp. last week.
Jonathan J. Rockey, 36, of Springfield, pleaded not guilty to one count each of domestic violence, abduction, disrupting public services, assault, menacing and unauthorized use of a vehicle in Clark County Municipal Court on Tuesday morning. Bond was set at $23,500.
Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the intersection of Studebaker Road and Ayers Pike for an active domestic violence dispute on Feb. 17. The victim and another man who stopped to help told deputies the suspect just drove off in a minivan towards Miami County, according to a police report.
A witness told deputies he was driving on Ayers Pike when he heard a woman calling for help. As he pulled up to the van, he allegedly saw Rockey stomping on a woman’s head. The witness told Rockey he had an active concealed carry permit, the report said. Rockey allegedly threatened the witness, he said.
The victim told deputies she had just arrived home in New Carlisle when Rockey asked her to go on a car ride, the report said. Rockey allegedly had alcohol on his breath and threw the victim’s phone into the back of the car so she wouldn’t be able to reach it. Rockey drove to some woods the victim wasn’t familiar with and allegedly refused to take her home, the report said.
Rockey accused the woman of cheating on him and allegedly told her if she didn’t tell the truth she wouldn’t make it out of the woods alive, the report said. The victim began yelling for help and Rockey allegedly pulled her out of the vehicle and began stomping on her head and stomach until the witness arrived to help. The victim told deputies multiple times she believed he was going to kill her, it said.
Rockey was taken into custody by deputies on Monday evening in New Carlisle, according to jail records.

Two illegal immigrants from Mexico have been charged with intent to distribute several kilograms worth of fentanyl in Miami County, according to court documents.
Nabor Zapeda-Ibarria, 23, and Jesus Mayorga Gonzalez, 40, have been charged with possession and intent to distribute more than 400 grams of fentanyl in Dayton’s U.S. District Court.
A magistrate judge ruled Tuesday that both would remain detained during their case. Both are scheduled for a March 2 preliminary hearing.
Confidential sources told law enforcement that a residence at 5545 County Road 25A in Tipp City was being used by a drug trafficking organization with ties to Mexico, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit written by a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) special agent.
In January, Mayorga Gonzalez was stopped for speeding on Interstate 75 and provided false names for both defendants, according to the complaint.
The special agent wrote that, according to a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office detective assigned to a Homeland Security task force, Mayorga Gonzalez was the subject of a November 2016 seizure of nine kilograms (19.84 pounds) of heroin and $400,000.
“Specifically, during the prior investigation a cooperating witness stated that Mayorga Gonzalez was a coordinator f0r large amounts of heroin coming into the Dayton area and was also involved with the collection of large amounts of drug proceeds,” the special agent wrote. A prosecutor and defense attorney both said Tuesday that Mayorga Gonzalez was not arrested the 2016 case.
The affidavit said that the DEA obtained a search warrant earlier this month for the “target residence”and located Zapeda-Ibarria inside along with evidence.
The evidence mentioned included a hydraulic press, Tyvek suits, face masks and more than $150,000 cash, three kilograms of suspected fentanyl in the attic floor, a loaded handgun, scales and suspected drug cutting agents.
Mayorga Gonzalez was found with a key to the residence, according to the complaint, which stated that both men admitted to being in the country illegally.
