Lee County Sheriff’s deputies make arrest in morning home invasion in North Fort Myers
Lee County Sheriff’s Office announced via Facebook it arrested suspects in a home invasion in North Fort Myers Monday.
Deputies responded to a home on Foxlake Drive in the Foxmoor Lakes neighborhood, where investigators say two armed men broke into a home, robbed and pistol-whipped a victim.
A neighbor at the Foxmoor Lakes community is upset about the whole thing. He asked us not to use his name on air or in our web publication. He says one of the suspects pointed a gun at him.
The neighbor told us he heard a bang and went outside. That’s when he says he saw two men trying to get away, and one of them pointed a gun very close to his face and ordered him to go back inside.
The neighbor thanks God no further harm came to him in the encounter but was very shaken up by the experience.
The suspect reportedly got away from the scene in a pickup truck, but a sheriff’s deputy was able to find the truck with the suspects inside.
Suspect then led deputies on a chase, and during the chase, they intentionally hit two patrol cars.
Afterward, deputies were able to stop and arrest both men.
Both suspects face charges for aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault and home invasion robbery.
The neighbor we spoke to reminds everyone, if you see something, say something.
