Two Florida women Sarah Franks and Kaitlin O’Donovan have both been detained in the Pinellas County Jail and assessed bond in the amount of $75,000 for allegedly throwing glitter at a man inside his apartment complex in Pinellas County.
Kaitlin O’Donovan, 27, and Sarah Franks, 29, each stands accused of one count of felony burglary with assault or battery against a man named Jacob Colon. Franks was also charged with criminal mischief.
Both women hail from Clearwater, Fla. and are alleged to have thrown glitter at the man during some sort of an argument. The small, sparkly and shiny projectiles allegedly hit Colon in his head and upper torso. It is unclear if the alleged victim was injured during the incident.
The relationship, if any, between the three is presently unknown–as is the motive behind the alleged incident.
O’Donovan and Franks made their way to the man’s apartment around 3 a.m. on Monday and got into a dispute with him while he was standing on his balcony. The first container of glitter was thrown from across the balcony’s fence, police say. Then, things allegedly escalated.
Next, according to court records, Franks scaled the balcony and climbed over the fence, making her way inside Colon’s apartment where she threw more containers of glitter at him. Then, she allegedly made her way to the front door, unlocked and opened it, allowing O’Donovan access. Once both women were inside, a fusillade of fine and frolicsome dust was allegedly unloaded on the unwilling recipient.
In Franks’s arrest report, obtained by Law&Crime, police allege she “came to the victim’s apartment and battered him, entered the dwelling and battered him further.” After that, police claim, the defendant “was observed kicking a lower apartment window until it broke” while on her way out–the source of her additional charge.
Both women are alleged to have left the apartment in a car after tossing what Orlando Sentinel reporter Tiffini Theisen termed the illicit-under-the-circumstances “iridescent irritant” at Colon.
