On Tuesday morning December 19th in the area of the Osceola Point Apartments, Kissimmee, FL, a man and woman identified themselves as “police” as they knocked loudly on the front door of the apartment and ordered the occupants to open the door.
When the victim opened the door, she was grabbed by the man, thrown to the floor by her hair, sprayed with a chemical agent, and punched and kicked about her face and body. As the victim screamed for help, neighbors came out of their apartments, causing the suspects to flee.
Both suspects were observed to be wearing masks. The male suspect was described as being white, approximately 5’11”, having a stocky, muscular build, and brown hair. The male was wearing a long sleeved, blue and white striped shirt, shorts, a baseball cap, and black and green bandana with skulls on it to cover his face. The female suspect was described as being white, heavy set on the upper part of her body, but having skinny legs. She was wearing a pink pastel shirt with white stripes and long, gray pants.
Deputies noticed several other doors in the apartment complex had also been sprayed with a similar chemical agent. Three days later on December 22nd two more incidents of unknown suspects knocking on doors claiming to be police occurred across the street from the original location; however no one opened the door for them.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office is asking citizens to not open their doors to unknown persons, and to call 911 to confirm persons identifying themselves as police are in fact, associated with a law enforcement agency.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at (407) 348-2222 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
