A man in Florida went through a horrific ordeal on Christmas Eve.
The unnamed victim was found sleeping in her bedroom in Bradenton, Manatee County, in the early morning hours of December 24.
When the homeowner woke up, his foot was placed in the inflatable mouth. After asking the stranger what he was doing on his property, the intruder said he was there to suck his toes.
According to the Bradenton Herald, a fight broke out between the pair when the intruder tried to grab the victim’s genitals before threatening the victim with a gun.
As per the police report, the homeowner – who was alone in the house at the time – did not find this gun and no weapons were found at the scene.
Fortunately, the victim was able to force the suspect out of the house. When the two got out, deputies said the homeowner struck the suspect’s face for about 30 seconds and ran back into the home to call 911.
After being removed from the property, the occupant smashed one of the windows in the home and repeatedly stumbled upon the victim’s car windshield before escaping. This caused $ 1,000 worth of damage to the residence and car, as reported by Smoking Gun.
Deputies attempted to track foot-scratching with the help of a police dog, although they have not yet been able to locate the suspect.
As the Bradenton Herald reports, DNA clothes have been taken from the homeowner’s licking toes in an attempt to locate the suspect.
The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said an investigation into the incident is ongoing.
According to Local 10, officers described the suspect as a bald man between the ages of 20 and 25, who stood at 5-foot-11 and weighed approximately 160 lbs.
If arrested, the alleged foot-sucker will face a felony charge.
