ON THE BALL: Boca Victim Kicks Attacker Where It Counts

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — What could best be described as an attempted mugging turned into a painful lesson for the attacker who had to back off when the victim kicked his — let's say — “reset button.”

From Boca Police:

On Monday, January 27, at about 9:50 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of an aggravated battery which occurred outside the CVS at 520 South Federal Highway.

The victim told officers she had just finished shopping and was getting into her car, but before she was able to close the door, a male stepped between the door and the frame. The suspect, later identified as Daryl Lewis, held an edged weapon that the victim described as a “shank,” and told her he “needed to get home so he could bury his mother.”

The victim began screaming and kicking Lewis, who cut the victim, causing several superficial wounds. The victim landed a kick to Lewis’s groin which caused him to take a step back. A witness pulled up behind the victim’s car and yelled at Lewis who then tried to explain he was the victim’s boyfriend. When the victim denied the statement, Lewis ran off.

Officers located Lewis several blocks away and the victim identified Lewis as her attacker. Officers arrested Lewis and charged him with aggravated battery, armed burglary with a battery, and armed kidnapping. Lewis also had an active violation of probation warrant for theft out of Broward County.
