Six teenagers have been arrested in connection with a series of armed robberies that took place over a span of a day in Osceola County, according to St. Cloud Police Department. It is suspected that these are the same teens that robbed two 7 Elevens in Kissimmee and Davenport last week.
Early Saturday morning, around 12:30am, six young men armed with firearms entered the Circle K Gas Station located at 2901 Canoe Creek Road in St. Cloud, threatened employees, damaged store property, and demanded money from the cash register.
The suspects then fled before St. Cloud Police could arrive.
Later that same morning, St. Cloud Police Dept. received reports of several vehicle beings burglarized at the Gramercy Farms subdivision in St. Cloud. Among the vehicles burglarized was an unmarked police vehicle, which had a taser stolen.
An hour later that same day, St. Cloud Police Officers responded to another report of an armed robbery at the Gramercy Farms Subdivision. Five males armed with a Taser, entered a home under construction and demanded money and property from the construction workers. One of the workers attempted to flee but was shot with the Taser and received severe injuries to his face. The males then fled the area on foot.
With the help of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, five of the suspects were identified, including 15-year-old Felipe Leal Do Nascimento, 16-year-old Bruno Dalpra, 16-year-old Thallys De Souza, 17-year-old David Souza Cesario, and 13 year-old Enrico Paterlini Gervasio.
The sixth suspect that participated in the initial armed robbery has been identified and charges are pending. The charges included Armed Robbery, Home Invasion, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Aggravated Battery, Armed Burglary, and several other offenses.
