Police Tie Orlando Rape Suspect to WPB Groping Case

first_imgOrlando Police say they found DNA linking Calixte to a sexual battery in a neighborhood there.The victim in that case was apparently trying to go into her house when Calixte assaulted her.Meanwhile, a West Palm Beach police report identifies Calixte as the suspect in a Sunset Park groping case.The report states that a 16-year-old and her cousin were walking to the park when Calixte approached them with “uncomfortable, sexual comments.”The victim told police that Calixte rubbed her back and fondled her backside.According to the report, “(The victim) felt abused, extremely uncomfortable, and in fear the suspect would attempt something worse.”Police identified Calixte as their suspect through a photo the victim took of him.“She sent a picture to the officer, we were able to develop a photo lineup, and she was able to positively identify him from the lineup,” says Police Sergeant David LeFont.West Palm Beach Police are asking women who think that Calixte may have assaulted them to come forward by contacting the police department at (561) 822-1900.LeFont adds, “We’ll be reaching out to the other police department and putting those cases together, basically develop a timeline of where the person was. And perhaps there’s other agencies that have other cases that maybe didn’t have enough evidence to charge him or we have a case where we didn’t realize this was the same person.” An Orlando man was arrested in West Palm Beach on Tuesday on suspicion of sexual battery and allegedly groping a local teenager.Detectives from the Orlando Police Department worked with West Palm Beach police to track down and take 36-year-old James Calixte into custody.last_img read more

“Miracle Woman” Survives Six-Hour Cardiac Arrest

first_imgA British woman has made a full recovery, after her heart stopped beating for six hours due to severe hypothermia.Officials report that 34-year-old Audrey Schoeman got caught in a snowstorm while hiking in the Pyrenees mountain range in Spain last month.Her husband, Rohan, called for help. He says, “I thought she was dead. I was trying to feel for a pulse… I couldn’t feel a breath, I couldn’t feel a heartbeat.”Schoeman was taken to a hospital, where Dr. Jordi Riera treated her. He says Schoeman’s situation is very rare, since the human brain typically suffers irreparable damage if the heart stops beating for five minutes.The doctor adds, “What happened to her is a consequence of the drop in body temperature.” Apparently, Schoeman survived because the extreme drop in body temperature that stopped her heart also slowed down her brain metabolism. That allowed her heart to cope more effectively with the lack of oxygen.Schoeman’s body temperature had dropped to 64.4 Fahrenheit, as opposed to the normal 97.7-99.5 Fahrenheit range. Riera and his medical team used an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine in order to keep her alive.ECMO replaces the heart and lung functions. That allowed the doctors to oxygenate Schoeman’s blood and pump it around the body.Riera says Schoeman’s body slowly warmed up until her heart started beating again after six hours.“She woke up and asked: ‘What am I doing here?’” Riera says.The woman suffered a slight loss of sensitivity in her hands, but should make a full recovery.Riera adds, “As a scientist I don’t like the word but it’s like a miracle.”According to Schoeman, “It’s like a miracle except I think it’s all because of the doctors. Probably this winter I won’t go to the mountains, but I hope that in spring we will be able to start hiking and trekking again. I don’t want this to take away that hobby from me.”last_img read more

Woman who breached Mar-a-Lago security seen dancing on vehicle just before

first_imgAccording to the report, the suspect, thirty-year-old Hannah Roemhild, was seen dancing on top of the rented Jeep in the parking lot of The Breakers. When Roemhild noticed that a Florida Highway Patrol vehicle was approaching her she then jumped into the jeep and put the vehicle in gear.The trooper then smashed the driver’s side window in an attempt to control the steering wheel but Roemhild was still able to drive away.She continued driving down A1A on the wrong side of the road where she eventually blew through two checkpoints leading up to Mar-a-Lago.Secret Service then fired their weapons in an attempt to stop the vehicle that was believed to be traveling at over 70 miles per hour. Roemhild was not injured but Secret Service did manage to shatter the back window of the Jeep.Authorities then pursued Roemhild down Southern Blvd but lost her when she crossed over into West Palm Beach.During that time, Roemhild is believed to have picked up another person.A trooper then located Roemhild some time later and began to pursue her. The trooper followed Roemhild to a Motel 6 off Australian Ave where Roemhild parked the vehicle and attempted to run. The trooper was, however, able to tackle her and take her into custody.During a press conference Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says he believes that Roemhild may have been impaired and lost but that he does not think she had any intention of going to Mar-a-lago.She is expected to be charged with assault on a federal Officer, deadly assault on sheriff’s deputies, and other traffic charges. Authorities are now reporting that the woman who was arrested for driving through several checkpoints at Mar-a-Lago early Friday, was seen moments before dancing on top of the vehicle she was driving.Shots fired at SUV that breached security checkpoints near Mar-a-Lagolast_img read more
