Deputies make arrest in brutal central Florida home invasion; 1 man still sought
POINCIANA, Fla. (AP) — Polk County Sheriff's deputies say two men armed with guns and a machete forced a 20-year-old man to tie up his father, then raped his mother and poured bleach over her body.
The attack happened Monday night in the central Florida community of Poinciana.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Thursday that the suspects are brothers and one man is in custody. The other is still at large.
The Lakeland Ledger (http://bit.ly/1934BmH) reports the suspects approached the 20-year-old while he stood outside a house talking on his phone and forced him into the residence, where his mother and father live.
Once inside, the men demanded money and jewelry.
Judd said the men tied up the 20-year-old after forcing him to bind his father. They raped his mother.
