Tampa, Florida – Five roomies who survived through a violent home assault and break-in told a judge on Tuesday about the traumatic nightmare.
Each of the five roommates remembered the scary situation when attacked by suspect Cleveland East.
East the suspect, who they well thought of a friend is 18 years old. He wants the judge to lessen his bond so he can get out of jail before trial. The five sufferers are struggling to keep him behind bars. Endia Kirkland is one of the victims. He explained, “Honestly, I’m just worried about my security these were individuals who we thought were our friends and if you could be our friends and do this to us that just demonstrates the kind of person you are.”
Robert Reboes is Endia’s roomie. He said he recalls Cleveland East and his partner breaking into their home, going to every room and robbing them at gunpoint.
Reboes also said they were looking for mobile phones. After listening to all the evidence, the judge decided to keep the culprit’s bond the same to the relief of the group.
