This Hillsborough County Woman is not one to mess with. A now viral security video shows a woman named Nashali Alma quietly working out at her apartment gym. A man with more sinister intentions than just a simple exercise soon confronted her.
As if the pressure of exercising wasn’t enough, Alma found herself in a full-blown fight for survival! The man, identified as Xavier Thomas-Jones, suddenly grabbed her near a weight set. But in true Rocky fashion, Alma refused to go down without a fight. She swung her fists and even her phone at the attacker, proving that sometimes, a good old-fashioned punch to the face is the best defense.
As Alma fought off her attacker and dialed 911 for help, the man appeared to give up, and she was able to escape to a nearby apartment for safety. Authorities quickly apprehended Thomas-Jones within 24 hours, and he was charged with some pretty serious crimes including kidnapping and sexual battery. However, let’s just say his chances of hitting the gym anytime soon are looking pretty slim, as he’s currently being held without bond.
But let’s not forget the true hero in all of this. Nashali Alma has become a symbol of strength and resilience. She showed that sometimes all you need is a good punch and a charged phone to come out on top. Furthermore, if you’re hitting the gym anytime soon, make sure to keep your wits about you. Keep your fists at the ready. You never know who might be lurking around the weight bench.

These Are The 5 Most Most Dangerous Florida Cities - 2023 Update
With the ominous title of “These Are The 5 Most Most Dangerous Florida Cities ” comes a bit of good news. Last year(2022), 6 Florida cities made the Top 100 List. Melbourne, Panama City, Lake Worth, Daytona Beach, Palm Springs, and Riviera Beach. In the 2023 update, no Florida city cracked the Top 50. And there’s definitely been some shuffling. Conversely, in 2016, 12 Florida cities made this list. Locally, just 12 years ago Fort Myers ranked high on this list. Now it’s not on here at all. Think you know which Florida cities did make this top 10 list? Wrong. Miami didn’t make it.
So which cities made The Most Dangerous Florida Cities list?
Here’s the methodology, according to Neighborhood Scout :”Our research reveals the 100 most dangerous cities in America with 25,000 or more people, based on the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Violent crimes include homicide, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Data used for this research are 1) the number of violent crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city, and 2) the population of each city.” It continues “Once we have this complete and accurate count of crimes for every city in the nation, our analysis takes the violent crimes for each city with 25,000 or more people, and divides them by the population of the city, divided by 1,000. This establishes a violent crime rate per 1,000 population that is used to compare every city.”
I’m proud of Florida for only having 5 cities on this list this year. But that’s because what the list is. Violent crimes. Assault with a pizza. Throwing an alligator through a Wendy’s Drive Thru window. Driving a golf cart naked down I75. Those are the crimes Florida is known for. And those didn’t fall into the FBI violent crimes category. But here’s the cities that do find themselves on this list of Dangerous Florida Cities. I’m staying Florida centric on most, but I will do the top 10.
