Puerta said she passed out but when she came to she managed to walk out of the Metromover and called 911.

King is facing three counts of aggravated battery charges, and officers say they suspect him of attacking two other men on the Metromover that same day.

King was released Sept. 10 on a $1,500 bond and he is set to appear in Miami-Dade County court on Sept. 25.

Puerta, who suffered a broken rib, swollen jaw and black eye, said she fears he will attack again.

“I have a lot of marks on my body,” Puerta told WSVN. “I don’t know how I’m alive.”
