BOCA RATON, FL ( (From Boca PD) — A September crime has led to a felony attempted murder charge against Xavier Sullivan.

From Boca PD:

On Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 8:50 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to an aggravated battery at 911 South Ocean Boulevard.  When officers arrived they found the victim lying on the ground bleeding from several head wounds.

The victim told officers she went down the stairwell of her apartment building to the parking garage.  When she entered the garage, a male wearing a plaid shirt and blue pants and carrying a baseball bat approached her.  The suspect told her to be quiet and she wouldn’t be hurt.  When the victim began screaming, the suspect hit her in the head and continued hitting her after she fell to the ground.  The suspect fled the scene without stealing any of the victim’s belongings.  The victim was transported to the Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

Responding officers located an aluminum bat in the bushes north of the building and property in the stairwell. Officers also found unattended property near the Camino Bridge. A burglarized automobile was parked near where the victim was attacked.

The investigation led Boca Raton Police detectives to Xavier Sullivan.  Detectives obtained a search warrant for Sullivan’s DNA and the recently obtained results of the analysis linked Sullivan to the aggravated battery.

Detectives charged Sullivan with attempted felony murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
