Early Sunday morning, Martin County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a 911 call at a residence on SE Orchid Street about the homeowner and her son fighting off a male stranger.
The intruder had jumped through their front plate glass window.
When deputies arrived, they found a 19 year old male being held down by the homeowner’s adult son.
During the fight, the intruder displayed extreme strength and a high tolerance to pain.
The homeowner and her son struggled to control him.
The victim struck the intruder in the head with a baseball bat several times.
Arriving deputies were able to restrain the subject, who was too violent to be placed in the rescue helicopter.
He was transported via Martin County Fire Rescue to the hospital for treatment.
The intruder is currently in stable condition.
During the initial investigation deputies interviewed the subject’s friend, who stated they had ingested methylone and acid.
He took the deputies to a house on Normandy Avenue, where the remaining narcotics were seized.
The female victim in this attack was injured by flying glass, but has since been released from the hospital.
The son was unharmed.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office will release updates on this case, as they become available.
