Florida man claims to have been woken up on Christmas Eve by a home intruder sucking on his toes, according to a police report.
The unnamed 20-year-old man in Bradenton, Florida told police that he was soundly asleep when the sensation of a man sucking his toes snapped him out of his slumber, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun. Police responding to reports of burglary was the first to be told details of the bizarre incident.
"The victim asked the suspect what [he] was doing and told [him] that he did not have any money. The suspect told him [he] was there to suck toes," said an officer in the police report, in which the unidentified suspect's gender has been redacted.
The man apparently did not appreciate the fact that his toes were unexpectedly lodged in a stranger's mouth, responding with a violent barrage that brought the toe sucking to a halt and forced the intruder away from the house.
"The victim proceeded to punch the suspect in the mouth and force [him] out of the bedroom and outside into the yard," says the report. "While he was forcing [him] out, the suspect told the victim that [he] had a gun and then attempted to fondle the victim's genital area. The gun was never seen during the altercation."
Apparently unfazed by the assailant's gun threat, the man continued to successfully fight off his attacker, punching him "across the face for approximately 30 seconds." After finally wearing down the toe sucker, the man was able to return inside his home and call the police. However, the intruder was seemingly unwilling to give up his attack at that point. The man says the intruder ran back towards his house and punched out the glass in his front window. He then jumped on top of the man's car and "stomped on the windshield" until it broke, before escaping the scene on foot.
The Smoking Gun reports that they spoke with the victim, who claims that he hurt his hands hitting the intruder. He described the suspect as an approximately 5'11" black male between the ages of 20 and 25 with a shaved head. In addition to the sexual assault, he is said to have caused over $1,000 in physical damage to the man's home and property.
After the attack, police attempted to track down the toe sucker using dogs, but their efforts proved fruitless. DNA evidence was collected and authorities are still looking for the assailant. They hope to charge him with felony burglary with assault and battery and criminal mischief.
