A Farmington family is coming to grips with the death of their 28-year-old son, who was stabbed to death just days before finishing a bicycle trip down the East Coast, family members said.

Kevin-AdornoKevin Adorno, 28, of Unionville, had stopped to buy food and charge his phone at a McDonald’s restaurant on U.S. Route 1 in Vero Beach, Florida, when he was stabbed around 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to police.

Authorities have identified his attacker as 59-year-old Rene Herrera Cruz, a homeless man who had recently arrived in Vero Beach from Miami, according to the arrest affidavit.

A Farmington family is coming to grips with the death of their 28-year-old son, who was stabbed to death just days before finishing a bicycle trip down the East Coast, family members said.Kevin Adorno, 28, of Unionville, was at a McDonald’s restaurant on U.S. Route 1 in Vero Beach, Florida, when he was stabbed around 9:30 p.m. on Monday. Police said he had stopped to buy food and charge his phone.

Police said the incident was caught on surveillance video.

Cruz told police he was in the parking lot when a motorcycle pulled up near him. According to the affidavit, “Cruz had felt as if people kept watching him” so he moved to a different area and took a filet knife from his backpack.

He told police a man sitting in the restaurant near Adorno kept looking at him, making him nervous.

When Adorno went outside to use his cellphone, Cruz thought Adorno was taking pictures of him and “directing people to go after him,” according to the affidavit.

Adorno was walking near the drive-thru lanes in Cruz’s direction, and Cruz pulled the knife as Adorno approached, the affidavit says.

Police said Adorno spotted the knife and ran, but Cruz attacked.

“He’s going in cardiac arrest, please,” a witness is heard begging dispatchers in the 911 call. “He got stabbed in the heart. It was an attack, please.”

Authorities rushed to the scene and found Adorno lying on the floor near the restaurant bathrooms. Police said he’d been stabbed several times in the chest and arm and collapsed inside McDonald’s while witnesses applied pressure to his wounds.

“He felt as though his hands were literally on Adorno’s heart due to the severity of the wound,” police wrote of one of the witnesses in the arrest affidavit.

Adorno was pronounced dead a short time later at Indian River Medical Center, according to police.

Police said Cruz tossed the murder weapon into the bushes at McDonald’s while running across the street to a Burger King restaurant. He threw his shirt and a second knife into the garbage there, and officers took him into custody.

According to police, Cruz admitted to stabbing Adorno and said he felt threatened but didn’t see any weapons on the victim. Cruz told police the two did not know each other and had never spoken.

Police said it wasn’t their first encounter with Cruz.

“We dealt with him actually the night before. He called us from Burger King right across the street and he told responding officers that individuals were looking for him or were after him,” said Vero Beach Police Chief David Currey.

Family members said Adorno biked from Maine to Maryland with his sister last summer. He was two days and 100 miles away from completing the second leg of his trip, from Maryland to Miami.

They said Adorno, an athlete and animal lover who owned a graphic design company, was planning to propose to his girlfriend and was on the phone with her when Cruz attacked.

“The last thing she heard was the phone drop and then shortly thereafter the sound of sirens in the background,” police wrote in the affidavit.

Cruz has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bond.

Long eventually went in the victim’s room. Not long after that, she called for the witness, saying she stabbed the victim and that he was “leaking,” or bleeding.

The witness held a towel to the victim’s neck, and Long said she was sorry.

The witness and victim walked toward the witness’ home. Long ran after them and began punching the victim in the face.

The victim told police he didn’t want to have sex with Long because she’d been imbibing. He didn’t want to pursue charges.

He said she stabbed him in the neck, but that she didn’t mean to.

Long, of the 800 block of North 20th Street in Fort Pierce, was arrested on a felony battery charge.

Man stabs wife repeatedly …… immediately after their marriage counseling session May 15, 2014

Deputies arrested a Port Charlotte man over the weekend following a marriage counseling session performed by the family’s pastor.

3726428_GJeanwell Napolean, 50, is accused of stabbing his wife several times in her left inner bicep, middle abdomen and lower back after she called her pastor to come over for some counseling.

“She said, honey I love you! And he said, honey I love you too,” said Andre Dalleman, the couple’s counselor who is also a Deacon at Eben-Ezer Church in Port Charlotte.

When deputies arrived to their house on Truval Terrace in Port Charlotte, they saw several people on the ground in their front lawn, including the victim who was bleeding.

They transported Marie Napolean to Bayfront Memorial by EMS then she was Bayflighted to Lee Memorial.

Dallemand says he was in their house before the stabbing happened and that Jeanwell Napolean wasn’t acting angry at all, although he kept talking about how Marie was going to leave him.

Another family friend, Cherisma Bordes, was called to the house, and when she arrived, that’s when Jean seemed very upset and said his wife was cheating on him.

“I didn’t expect anything like this to happen because she was caressing him talking about love,” said Dalleman.

That family friend then needed to move her car so the pastor could leave.

When that happened, the family friend heard screaming from inside the home. She went inside and Marie was screaming frantically and had blood stains on her shirt. Bordes said she saw Jeanwell Napolean holding a butchers knife to his stomach area.

The couple’s nephew who is caring for her talked off camera. He said his uncle snapped because he didn’t get a pastor position he wanted.

Deputies arrested him for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and he was booked at the Charlotte County jail where he’s being held on no bond.

 

Man, 83, was having a bad day … he fights off three attackers then has his car stolen the next day April 2, 2014

poorguy_12881527_8colAn 83-year-old Pinellas Park man who was ambushed, beaten and stabbed by three teenagers is a victim again! This time it looks like those same suspects came back and stole his car.

All of this started Tuesday around 10 a.m. when Charles Clark was getting out of his car at his apartment complex, when one of the suspects came from behind and started beating him and then stabbed him. Another person tried to beat Clark as well, but Clark was able to fight him off. He then screamed for help and once neighbors noticed what was going on, the three teens fled on their bikes.

At the time police didn’t think the teens were able to steal anything, but Clark said he thought they wanted his car. It turns out the suspects did steal his car keys and at some point late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, police believe they returned and took off in Clark’s car.

Around 4 a.m. police noticed Clark’s car was missing and found three bicycles near his parking spot. His vehicle was later found abandoned in a St. Petersburg neighborhood. It is currently being processed for evidence.

Police describe the suspects as two teenage boys — one in his early teens and the other in his late teens — and a girl in her early to mid teens with a heavier build and reddish, brown hair which she was seen continually trying to stuff into a gray hooded sweatshirt.

Below are surveillance images of two of the suspects riding bikes shortly before Tuesday’s attack:

 

Dressed like Rambo, gun-wielding man attacks patrons at resort bar March 17, 2014

sfl-flduh-armed-rambo-resort-bar-20140317-001By all accounts, Daniel Allen Noble was having a good time drinking in the bar of a Palm Coast resort Saturday evening.

But he ended the night in jail after Flagler County deputies say he went on a Rambo-style rampage that left two men injured with knife wounds.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Noble, 37, left the Europa Lounge at some point in the evening, only to return later dressed like Rambo, the movie character played by Sylvester Stallone. He was armed with what the Sheriff’s Office described as an “Uzi-style assault rifle” and a pair of hunting knives.

Shortly after 11 p.m., Noble challenged several patrons inside the lounge, which is located in the European Village resort, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Two patrons stopped Noble and grabbed the barrel of the gun, and one or two shots were fired into the floor.

The men got the gun away from Noble, but he lashed out with one of the knives, the Sheriff’s Office said. The men wrestled Noble to the ground and knocked him unconscious, but not before of them suffered knife wounds.

Vassili Mironov, 28, was stabbed near the left eye and was cut on both hands. He was treated and released at a local hospital.

Roman Dubinsechi, 23, suffered cuts to one arm. He declined medical treatment.

Both Mironov and Dubinsechi live in Palm Coast.

Deputies do not know what spurred Noble’s attack.

Noble, also of Palm Coast, was treated at local hospital, then booked into the Flagler County Detention Facility, where he is being held without bail. He faces a charge of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, the Sheriff’s Office said.
