Must Read

Winter Haven Police

Can you help identify the guy that pummeled a 73 year-old man?
Today (3/26/22) around 2:20 p.m., our victim was walking out of Publix at SE Plaza along Cypress Gardens Blvd. As he entered the crosswalk, a pewter colored Ford F250 sped by faster than it should have and came very close to the victim. The victim yelled out to the driver and the truck slowed. A verbal exchange transpired as the truck continued to drive away. Our victim went towards the exit where the truck was heading toward Cypress Gardens Blvd. and the truck stopped.
The male exited the truck and punched the elderly man. The victim said he was calling police so the suspect walked back over and pummeled the elderly man. He then took the cell phone out of the victim’s hand and smashed it to the ground not allowing him to call for help. It is unknown what direction he left on Cypress Gardens Blvd.
The suspect and his family had been eating at the China Buffet earlier where we are able to capture his image you see below.
Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Winter Haven Police Department at 863-401-2256. Callers wishing to remain anonymous should call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS. Callers are guaranteed anonymity and could be eligible for a CASH reward.
