The sheriff’s office tells News 25 that the man was attacked at the intersection of Palmetto Drive and Beachview Avenue. The scene happened only feet away from a nearby fireworks stand.
Amelia Daniels, who owns the fireworks stand, said, “And I saw the little fella get out of the car and he was holding his hands up saying ‘just take your stuff. Just take your stuff and leave me alone.’ I did not actually see anything other than that because I immediately shut the door and started locking everything down.”
The sheriff’s office says the incident remains under investigation today. No word yet on a motive.
