BRADENTON, Fla. — A toe-sucking burglar broke into a Bradenton home on Christmas Eve and got into a fight with a resident, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies who responded to a home on 60th Avenue West were told that the victim was sleeping in his bedroom when he was awakened by the suspect sucking on his toes, according to an incident report.

The victim asked the suspect what he was doing and the suspect simply stated he “was there to suck toes,” according to the report.

Deputies say a fight ensued and during the fight the suspect attempted to grab his genitals and then threatened the victim saying he had a gun.

According to the report, a gun was never seen, but the victim managed to force the suspect out of the home. The suspect then smashed out a window to the home and then destroyed the victim’s car windshield.

Deputies tried to track the suspect with a K9 but were unsuccessful in locating the suspect. DNA swabs were taken from the victim’s toes, according to the report.

The sheriff’s office said the case is still under investigation.
