Man held victim captive for 2 days

An Eatonville man has been accused of kidnapping someone in downtown Orlando and them holding them captive for two days.
Media outlets report that 22-year-old Trevor Howell is accused of forcing a person into the backseat of a car Monday afternoon at the Lynx bus station in downtown Orlando.
An arrest report says Howell took the victim, whose gender hasn't been specified, to a hotel on International Drive and held them captive there for two days against the victim's will. The victim was eventually able to escape and find help.
The report says that when Orange County deputies arrived at the hotel, Howell refused to identify himself. Deputies were able to identify him using a fingerprint reader.
Howell has been charged with kidnapping and sexual battery. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

Jury finds former St. Lucie County teacher Dan Hussan, guilty on all 16 counts

Jury finds former St. Lucie County teacher Dan Hussan, guilty on all 16 counts of lewd behavior with former students.
If Hussan gets the maximum sentence he could be looking at a 240 year sentence. So the 70-year-old would live the rest of his life behind bars.
The former St. Lucie County teacher was found guilty on 16 counts that each come with a maximum 15 year sentence for committing sex acts against kids ranging in age from from 14 to 17 years old.
Most of the former students don't know each other, and they span about a decade of Hussan's teaching career.
Out of the eight girls that accused Hussan, two of them testified in court.
He denies the accusations.
Hussan's attorney says it is an attempt to get money from the former educator.
Sentencing is set for September 19th.

Boy, 5, drowns in neighbor's pool

Police say a 5-year-old boy drowned in a backyard swimming pool at a Jacksonville home.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Sgt. Chuck Ford says neighbors called the homeowner Wednesday afternoon after a child went missing. He was working nearby so he checked his backyard surveillance video on his cellphone and saw a child in the pool. He called 911 and rushed home.
The man pulled the boy from the pool and rescue workers rushed him to the hospital.
Ford says the child lived around the corner from the home with the pool. He said the yard is fully fenced in but because of rescuers coming and going it was difficult to tell whether the gate had been secured.
The child's parents were interviewed but his name wasn't released.

2 arrested for alleged extortion of social media star

Two South Florida residents have been arrested after police say they threatened to leak sexually explicit images of social media star "YesJulz" unless she paid them.
Media outlets report 28-year-old Hencha Voigt and 33-year-old Wesley Victor were arrested Friday on extortion charges.
Miami Beach police say Voigt and Victor contacted Julieanna Goddard, also known as "YesJulz," and claimed to have X-rated photos of her. Victor gave Goddard 24 hours to pay them $18,000, threatening to publish the pictures online if she didn't.
The two were arrested as they were waiting in a car on Miami Beach.
Police say Voigt has admitted to the crime.
Victor denies any involvement. His attorney, Keljka Bozanic, says there is no evidence linking Victor to the crime.
The New York Times recently named Goddard the "Queen of SnapChat," where she has more than 300,000 viewers.

The Broadway show closes in September.

A joint task force arrested Eric Ginnie, 23, on July 22 for a series of robberies throughout the county. Ginnie is linked to two similar armed robberies in Fort Lauderdale. The investigation is ongoing.
Two men dressed in black entered the Family Dollar store at 2901 W. Oakland Park Blvd., held two employees at gunpoint and raided the store’s register. The same gunman robbed a Deerfield Beach restaurant two days earlier.
On July 11, surveillance video captured the two robbers entering the store just before closing on July 11. The unidentified men immediately approached the employees. One of them was armed with a gun. He told the clerk behind the registers, “Give me the keys and give me the money, or I’ll kill you.”
The store clerk complied and began to open the registers as the second robber walked around to the back of the counter to grab the cash. When the armed robber noticed a second employee was standing near the front of the store, he had the employee kneel by the registers.
The gunman is described as a male in his 20s, approximately 6’2” tall, weighing approximately 170 lbs. with a dark complexion and dark facial hair. He wore a black hooded zipper sweatshirt, black pants, red sneakers and a black backpack. He was armed with a semi-automatic handgun.
The second man, who seemed to be unarmed, is described as being approximately 5’9” tall, weighing approximately 130 lbs. and having a dark complexion. He wore a black hooded zipper sweatshirt, black pants and a mask to cover his face.
On July 8, the gunman, solo this time, was caught on security video when he robbed the Pizza Hut located at 1640 W. Hillsboro Blvd. in Deerfield Beach. In this instance, he pretended to pay for a pizza. Once the register was open, he pulled out a gun, reached over the counter and grabbed the cash. As he fled, he called out to the cashier, “Don’t look at me.”

Just after 2 a.m. this morning, Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputy Peter Sepot arrested two juveniles for burglarizing the Rent-A-Center at 11 S. Pompano Parkway in Pompano Beach.
The deputy had set up an overnight surveillance due to a series of burglaries and attempted business burglaries in the area. During the surveillance, Deputy Sepot observed the two burglars throw a rock through the business’ window. They entered the store a few moments later and came out with three laptops.
The burglars then fled towards the Collier City area. Additional deputies, K-9 and aviation responded and established a perimeter. The suspects were subsequently taken into custody. After an extensive search of the area, deputies located property that was removed from Rent-A-Center. The suspects later confessed to several other burglaries in the area.
The same two burglars are also responsible for the July 20 burglary of Star Nails at 2663 W. Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach. During this burglary the juveniles, along with three as of yet unidentified suspects, used a rock to smash the front glass door. Once inside, they stole four televisions and hundreds of dollars in cash.
