DISTRICT COURT | Man faces imprisonment charges after restraining woman

A 29-year-old man was charged after restraining his ex-girlfriend for several hours during a May 25 incident.

According to Kitsap County District Court documents, Ronald Laverne Ronkar was charged with unlawful imprisonment on May 28.

Charging papers  stated the woman told investigators she broke up with Ronkar several months ago, but he would not leave her alone. While staying with her mother, Ronkar knocked on the doors and windows during early morning hours.

Later that morning, the woman decided to ride her bicycle back to her residence, but discovered her bike was missing. Ronkar yelled at the woman from up the street. The woman said she went to get her bike, but Ronkar grabbed her arm and dragged her into a nearby wooded area. He kept her in the woods for several hours before forcing her to go with him to a store on Mile Hill Drive, according to court records.

Court documents stated the woman said she got away when an unknown male asked Ronkar for a cigarette. She ran away from her ex-boyfriend and got her bike and returned to her mother’s home.

Ronkar was arrested May 25 and booked into Kitsap County Jail. Bail was set at $50,000.
