SEBASTIAN, Florida – On Tuesday, July 31, 2018 shortly after 6:00 a.m, a white female and black male entered a residence in the 100 block of Kildare Drive through the back sliding door and struck a male resident in the head with an unknown object. While in the residence the suspects stole the victim’s keys and wallet.
The suspects then fled the residence through the front door and stole his 2004 silver in color Honda Pilot from the driveway. The victim retrieved his firearm from within the residence and fired one round at the fleeing suspects. At this time, it is unknown if the bullet hit either of the suspects.
