Naked man breaks in home, bites resident, then dies

An Ocala man died Saturday after allegedly breaking into a home while he was naked and biting a woman.

James Raines, 40, is accused of breaking into a home in the 2900 block of Northeast 45th St. in Ocala while nude about 4:26 a.m., according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. He then allegedly attacked two women and a man inside the home.

“[The victims] stated that Raines was out of control,” the MCSO wrote in a news release. “They also believed Raines was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”

Raines allegedly bit one person during the attack. Deputies found a bite mark on one of the women after the incident.

The victims “defended themselves” and were ultimately able to pin Raines down in a bedroom until deputies arrived, according to the sheriff’s office.

When deputies arrived, Raines was taken to an area hospital, where he later died.

The sheriff’s office did not say what caused Raines’ death.
