Devante Johnson Accused Of Stabbing Man During Sexual Encounter In Cemetery July 31, 2014


A man was stabbed five times by a man he was having sex with in Oakland Cemetery, according to Tallahassee Police.


53d16a2addf05.preview-300Court documents say Devante L. Johnson met with the victim at the cemetery around 11 p.m. on June 24th when the stabbing occurred.

The victim said it was during “sexual activity” that Johnson mentioned the victim’s ex-boyfriend and then started stabbing him.

Court records show that Johnson told the victim “no one would have to worry” about him anymore.

Law enforcement says the victim was able to kick Johnson out of the car and lock the doors. However, Johnson attempted to get back into the car by gaining access through a slightly open window, the victim told police.

The victim was able to escape and drive off, crashing through the cemetery’s fence at the intersection of 4th Ave. and Martin Luther King Blvd.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of his wounds. According to the police report, there were a total of five stab wound; three to chest and one in each arm.

Surgery was needed for internal injuries due to a punctured lung and lacerated liver, said police.


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.


Anger over photo behind stabbing death of West Boca restaurant owner March 15, 2014

fl-tilus-lebron-first-appearance-a-jpg-20140314The horrific crime unfolded inside the packed dining room of a popular West Boca eatery. More than 20 terrified diners watched as a worker wielding a huge knife stabbed the restaurant owner and another worker during a dinnertime melee.

The reason for the rampage? Palm Beach deputies say the worker — 42-year-old Tilus Lebrun — was angry that his photo had been taken and posted online on March 2. So he attacked Dimitrios Karaloukas, owner of Jimmy the Greek Taverna, during Thursday’s supper rush.

Karaloukas died of his wounds a short while after being stabbed. The other worker, not yet identified by deputies, was taken to Delray Medical Center in critical condition.

In the aftermath of the crime, Karaloukas’s family was left in shock.

Joseph Scurto, who is Karaloukas’ stepbrother, described him as a family man who loved his wife, kids and grandkids. Scurto said Karaloukas, who lived in West Boca and was known by most as “Jimmy,” cared for his restaurant as he would a child — and that he treated his customers well.

“He loved what he did, he loved the people that he served,” Scurto said in a phone call from his home in New York on Friday. “If someone came in and they didn’t have money, he would take care of them”.

Lebrun’s cousin Markenson Augustin, 21, who lives with Lebrun in Pompano Beach, said he’s a “good guy” working two jobs to help send money back to his three children in Haiti. Augustin said Lebrun moved to the U.S. in 2005.

“We’re shocked because we didn’t expect something like this,” Augustin said in a phone call Friday. “He was working like crazy. I don’t see him too much because he’s always working.”

He didn’t know why Lebrun would get so upset about a photo.

Augustin said Lebrun worked at the Sun Sentinel Distribution Center in Deerfield Beach. Hired through a temporary staffing agency, he worked from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. He started working at Jimmy the Greek restaurant in January, Augustin said. His shift as a dishwasher started there at 3:30 p.m.

Augustin said Lebrun expressed frustration with the restaurant job. Augustin said he told Lebrun he should quit the dishwashing job.

State records show no arrests for Lebrun. Augustin described Lebrun as a normal person and said he and the rest of the family were stunned over his murder arrest.

Deputies say the attack happened at about 7:30 p.m. with the restaurant bustling with customers.

Employees told deputies Karaloukas, 61, was sitting near the front of the restaurant when walked up to him carrying a large knife and began stabbing him, three times in his left side and once in the back, for no apparent reason, the arrest report said.

Karaloukas died from his injuries at about 8:45 p.m., according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies found Lebrun wearing a black work apron and carrying a knife on the 8000 block of Glades Road near the Florida Turnpike shortly after the killing. Some witnesses told Sun Sentinel news partner CBS12 the weapon was a meat cleaver.

While sitting in a deputy’s cruiser, Lebrun asked the deputy if he was Haitian, and when the deputy said yes, Lebrun spoke to him in Creole saying: “I killed him because he took my photograph on March 2 and posted it on the Internet.”

In an interview at sheriff’s office headquarters, Lebrun told the deputy: “They need to learn how to respect people. I have three kids in Haiti. I know they will suffer, but they will survive,” according to the report.

The deputy said while driving to headquarters for the interview, Lebrun repeatedly said Karaloukas had taken his photo without permission.

Lebrun is being held in Palm Beach County Jail without bail on homicide and attempted homicide charges.
