A man allegedly showed up unannounced and uninvited to a Fort Lauderdale apartment and began to attack the resident.
According to authorities, the 30-year-old suspect was intoxicated when he burst into the victim’s room.
The suspect allegedly began to violently attack the victim. The suspect allegedly threw the victim onto the bed and then threw him onto the floor.
Once the victim was on the floor, the suspect reportedly held him down “against his will.” The suspect also allegedly threatened to hit the victim with a clenched fist.
At one point, the victim took out a cell phone and tried to call police. However, the suspect grabbed the phone away from the victim and smashed it on the ground.
The suspect eventually left the apartment. According to police, he stole the victim’s bicycle while leaving the scene.
The victim called the Wilton Manor Police Department, which dispatched officers to the apartment.
Police officers later tracked down the suspect near the Wilton Manors Health & Rehabilitation Center.
While attempting to remove the suspect from the patrol car at the police station, the suspect allegedly resisted. After the officer got him out of the vehicle, the suspect reportedly “dropped his body weight to the ground.” Moreover, after being picked up off the ground and brought to his feet, the suspect began to tense his body and push backwards instead of walking toward the station.
The suspect was later taken to the Broward County Jail, where is being held on a $25,125 bond amount.
