Man critically wounds woman, sets fire to apartments in Winter Springs, police say

Justin Lorrison arrested in Oviedo after driving away in victim’s van

WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. – A man was arrested early Thursday — hours after being released from jail on hit-and-run and DUI charges — after a woman was critically wounded and her Winter Springs apartment was set on fire.

Winter Springs police said Justin Lorrison was arrested in Oviedo in connection with the attack on the woman and the fire, which resulted in the death of a dog.

Lorrison is locked up after a judge revoked his bond from the previous charges Thursday afternoon. He had just bonded out of jail on those charges around 10 p.m. Wednesday, according to police.

“Mr. Lorrison I made a ruling at the beginning of the week to let you out — I’m sad about that,” the judge said during Lorrison’s first appearance on some of the new charges Thursday afternoon. “Mr Lorrison at age 30 — or whatever age — it’s time to hold you in jail and figure out what’s going on and why this keeps happening to you in such a short period of time.”

In a 911 call, the woman said she was attacked by a family member.
