An Orlando apartment complex security officer on duty at an area apartment complex was taken to the hospital after being attacked and robbed, early Wednesday morning.
Orlando police said the security guard was patroling the complex when his attackers roughed him up then stole his gun and his taser.
The security officer managed to get away and ran to an apartment for help. The suspects tried to shoot the guard with the taser, but missed and drove off, sideswiping the security officer’s car.
Residents said the security gate to the complex has been broken for weeks, and it is too expensive to fix. One tenant said she isn’t surprised the robbery happened.
“Someone got robbed last Wednesday with a gun. Two months ago a pregnant lady got robbed with a gun,” said resident Mabel Lopez.
Police said the security guard has non-life threatening injuries and unfortunately he did not get a good look at the get away car.
Police did not release the name of the injured security officer or the name of his employer.
