VICTIM BEATEN, BURNED DURING ARMED HOME INVASION IN DELTONA
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred late last night in Deltona, with four suspects forcing their way into a man’s house, beating him and burning him with a metal object.
Deputies responded to the scene at 3067 Mapleshade St. around 11:15 p.m. Monday and found the victim, 42-year-old Rayborne Nesbitt, in a nearby yard. Nesbitt had lacerations and burn marks on his back and head area.
Nesbitt told deputies he was in bed around 10 p.m. when he heard a knock at his door, went to answer and found four males wearing masks. He said three of the suspects had guns pointed at him, and all four pushed their way into the house, demanding money.
Nesbitt said the suspects took turns beating him and burned him.
The suspects left with cash. Nesbitt was taken to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City, where he was treated for his injuries.
Investigators are actively working the case and following any leads to identify the four suspects. At this point, the investigators don’t believe the incident was a random break-in. No additional details are available at this time, but more information will be released as updates become available.
