FL: Teens Attempt Robbery, Victim uses Knife in Self Defense
Police said they were unable to find a crime scene, or a blood trail, or witnesses who saw a large group attacking the teens. After further questioning the teens in the hospital, the truth finally came out. “They actually had planned to meet an individual, at least one other individual, around the corner from here to conduct some type of illegal transaction,” said McKeone. “At that point they decided, instead of doing the transaction, they were maybe going to try and rob that individual.”
Investigators said that man apparently pulled out a knife and acted in self-defense. “It appears that would-be now potential suspect, who we were looking for, is actually a victim of the robbery, and in self-defense, he stabbed two kids as they attempted to do this robbery,” McKeone said.
