Florida man is stepping up his game, this time in two separate attacks using a tire iron and nail file.
According to police, on July 8, around 6 a.m., Ocala Police responded to a call involving a battery that took place at a residence. One victim said Michael Everett Lecorn, 39, traveled to their house, asked for money, then attacked him with a tire iron.
Though the victim blocked some of Lecorn’s strikes, he still received injuries to his arm. The victim retreated inside the house, but Lecorn followed him in.
Inside, another victim tried to intervene to stop the attack, however, Lecorn struck her head with the dangerous weapon.
After some more struggling, Lecorn fled the scene and drove away in his vehicle before OPD could arrive.
Lecorn left his shoes behind at the scene, according to police.
Police say that later that morning, around 10:30 a.m., Lecorn went to another victim’s house, about three miles away from the previous residence.
The victim was in her back doorway when Lecorn confronted her, demanding pills.
Lecorn wielded a metal nail file and started stabbing the victim in her arm. The victim was able to back up into her kitchen, but Lecorn followed her in.
When the victim stated she was going to “stab him back,” Lecorn fled.
Ocala Police Officers located and arrested Lecorn with multiple charges:
1) AGGRAVATED BATTERY 2) BURGLARY WITH BATTERY 3) BURGLARY – ARMED WITH DANGEROUS WEAPON 4) HOME INVASION ROBBERY WITH WEAPON.
