ENGLEWOOD, Fla.- The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office is looking for two men who tried to take a generator from an Englewood area home late Monday afternoon and, when confronted, pushed the homeowner to the ground.
Just before 6:00 p.m. on Monday, two men went to a home located in the 7600 block of Castleberry Terrace, asking about doing yard work. The resident told them she didn't want any work done and closed the front door. When the victim looked out, the men had loaded a generator from the garage into their truck and were returning to the garage. The victim confronted the men, who took the generator out of their truck. They pushed the victim to the ground and fled the area.
The vehicle is described as an older model small pickup truck with a standard cab. It is dark, possibly reddish, in color with a white tail gate. There were miscellaneous lawn care-type items in the truck bed, including an aluminum ladder. The vehicle tag number might contain either a “B” or an “8.”
The first man was described as being a white male in his 20s, medium build with medium length straight hair and unshaven facial hair.
The second man was described as a white male with a dark complexion in his 20s, light weight build with short trimmed hair and no facial hair.
Anyone with information on the identity of either of these men or their location is asked to please contact the Sheriff’s Office at (941) 639-2101, or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).
