Officer with the DeFuniak Springs Police responded to a disturbance at the corner of S. Park Street and Railroad Avenue on February 9, 2012 at approximately 11:15 AM. Two white males in a red Jeep SUV advised that they were the victims of a battery and carjacking by four white males in a green Chevrolet truck. The suspects began smashing the windows of the SUV with a sledge hammer while the victims were inside. The victims then tried to fend off the suspects’ attacks with a baseball bat. One of the suspects entered the SUV and drove a short distance before crashing into a nearby tree. All four suspects fled in the truck and were later located in the Niceville area. Law Enforcement Officers with the Niceville Police Department and Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office are assisting in the on-going investigation. Additional details will be released as the investigation continues. Charges are pending.
