Family Forced To Witness Rape During Brutal Home Invasion In Florida

Home Invasion

Poinciana, FL – Just before 11 pm Monday night, a home within the vicinity of Puffer Court and Halibut Road was invaded by two criminal suspects.

Two masked men, armed with guns and a machete, approached a 20-year-old resident just outside of the home.

Based on the family’s account, the intruders charged in and ordered the young man to tie up his father with extension cords. Thereafter, the burglars bound the young man and sadistically took turns threatening and sexually assaulting his mother.

In an attempt to expunge physical evidence of the rape, the woman was saturated in bleach. Before leaving the home, the men ransacked the master bedroom and took a five-gallon container full of change, $500 in cash, and jewelry.

The suspects were described as Spanish speaking males in their mid-20s to mid-30s, one 5’8″ and the other is 6’1″, wearing dark pants and gray hoodies.

Both men were eventually taken into custody by deputies several hours apart from one another on Thursday. The brothers, 33-year-old Richard Delgado Cruz and 29-year-old Danny Delgado Cruz, were arrested and charged in the home invasion and sexual battery.

Leading up to the break-in and assault, the siblings had been out and about in search of scrap metal to sell. After the attack, they abandoned a stolen F-150 truck nearby, leaving the machete and a comforter taken from the home inside. Police processed the available evidence.

The Cruz brothers will face felony charges – one count of armed robbery, one count of armed burglary of an occupied dwelling, one count of a felon in possession of a weapon, and one count of sexual battery, according to WTSP News.

The penalties against the two men may be enhanced with the consideration of their past indiscretions. The Ledger reports, the two brothers have extensive criminal histories. Richard Cruz had been arrested in a homicide by the in 2000. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was released from prison in 2008. Prior to that, Richard had been accused in a 1996 home invasion robbery. Danny’s priors consist of various charges of drug possession, battery, burglary, and grand larceny.

    The home invasion in Long Island last week and this one both say the suspects have extensive criminal histories.Who keeps letting them out of jail? What happened to the three strike rule?

  5. Gary Gunnels

    The best way to insure that these scumbags will never do that kind of crime ever again is simple, DEATH PENALTY, and not in 20 or 30 years, we must build gallows in back of every court house in america, when you get convicted of a VIOLENT FELONY, you get instant death, no apeals, no last meal, no bs, just take the scumbags out side and hangem right then. Is the death penalty a deterent, no, but it never was suposed to be. It is to insure that the criminal never does a crime again. And if it were used correctly it would work 100% of the time. Do not think so? Show me one person whe was executed that ever commited a crime after being exicuted.

    Gee, what a surprise, the suspects were "Spanish speaking males in their mid-20's to 30's. How unusual —- NOT!

    CASTRATE THEM would be FAR more effective!!!!

  11. Delores Johnson

    In your dreams — that's the ONLY place ANY death penalty sentence is carried out would be in your dreams.

    ohh please… there are more important things that races. name a country that only have Hispanic, illegal people or African American criminals and then we'll talk bout it!

  13. Mayra Roman

    they are not immigrants! Gosh … I will love to see tougher laws for criminals no matter the race. This is my family hurting here, they payed the price cause someone decided to let them go free knowing the trash they were letting out

    jimmy carter should be indicted as an accessory to this crime.

  15. Sean Devos

    Delores Johnson Sounds like a good dream to have. Then again, if they tried this in my house, they would get the death penalty upon entering, circa 9×19 at 1200fps.

    Better get used to the bipartisan-supported "Dream Act". More proof of the unity in Washington. There's us, and there's them. Not R's and D's. It's an illusion created for manipulation. When you discover it, you will see it so clearly.

  17. Tommy Sikes

    Why were these scumbags released from prison in the first place? I hope the people responsible for these two's release from prison are proud of themselve! Put these two in prison and keep them there for life.That would ensure they could not be a danger to the public again.

  18. Benny Passmore

    Take them out about 20 miles in the Atlantic and drop them in but cut their little toe off leaving a blood trail for.
    some hungry sharks.

    You can thank the Democraps for lenient laws and for promoting "diversity" in the USA. All that means is that we get to experience more crime from underachieving and low IQ minorities. Blacks are very overrepresented in crime statistics and next are hispanics. Whites and asians bring up the rear. I'd gladly swap blacks and hispanics for educated asians.

  20. Robert Munsinger

    This is a prime example of the tough on guns weak on criminals policy that is being pursued these days. One killed a man and was out in less than eight years. The other gave all kinds of warnings and let go. No problem our police will get them after the next victim which we Americans will create for them by taking all the household guns away.

    If they stop importing filth from 3rd world countries like Mexico and Haiti etc how will the liberal progressive commie/nazi get the voting majority they need to hold power and continue to destroy this once fine nation? Unfortunately for the libbytard commie, appearance over substance politics doesn't hold the public for long, they eventually expect things from their leaders like actual answers and not more anti Bush, anti conserve, anti tea party rhetoric and hate spewing to cover their complete failure at running the country and need to bring in fresh bodies, the old way was to get the dead to vote, they still use that but its getting harder to get away with, JFK got elected by dead people and the mob, so now its offer freebies at the expense of the american people to get the sheeple to vote commie. Every crime commited by an illegal or imported commie voter against a citizen will then be charged against not only the perpetrator but the filth that brought them here and shoved them in our lives will also get the same sentence.

    I think the problem is that jails are so overcrowded these days; they have to find ways to get rid of the old prisoners to make way for the new punks. Certainly NOT the best idea! They need to have tighter restrictions on who they let out early. God Bless that poor family, what they went thru was horrifying; their story is actually is my most-feared nightmare. BTW, burn or hang these two pieces of trash!
