Three black males broke into an occupied trailer in Wimauma this morning at around 5:41 a.m. and stole approximately $1,500 in cash and property. Five adults and three children were held at gun point during the incident. Arturo Vazquez Hernandez resisted and was pistol whipped by one of the suspects. He was treated and released at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
As the suspects left the home, they carjacked Bernardo Hilario Anastacia by smashing the window of the green, four-door, 2001 Ford Focus he was driving and yanking him out. Anastacia, who was not injured, was picking up a friend in the morning and was not related to the individuals in the home.
