Neighborhood Riot Leads to 9 Arrests at Mobile Home Park
Nine people have been arrested, including a 13-year-old girl, after a fight broke out between feuding neighbors, Osceola County deputies say.
The neighbors’ riot happened at the Morningside Mobile Home Park in Kissimmee on Sunday. All nine people were arrested yesterday.
Two women, 38-year-old Laurie Bihailo and 32-year-old Madelee Hernandez, told investigators they were sitting on a porch at Silver Lake Court at the mobile home park, when they were approached by two men. 13-year-old Erica Hernandez was also on the porch.
The woman said they asked the men, later identified as Daniel Nichols, 23, and Donnell Frazier, 21, to leave but they refused. That’s when a fight broke out and two other men, 39-year-old Ivan Hernandez and 48-year-old Heriberto Hernandez, armed with knives got into the act.
Investigators also learned, the feud spilled out into the street and several other people, with bricks in hand, became involved. Natasha McPherson, 25, and Randy L. Modeste, 19, were identified as being part of the melee.
The upshot of the rioting led to Nichols and Frazier being stabbed, investigators say. Both were airlifted to the Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Ivan Hernandez suffered a head injury.
Bihailo, M. Hernandez, Nichols, Frazier, I. Hernandez, H. Hernandez, McPherson and Modeste – were arrested and charged with aggravated battery, rioting battery and trespassing and booked into the Osceola County Jail. Investigators say, 13-year-old Erica Hernandez was released to her mother, once her mother bonded out.
Deputies say, the rioting was as a result of an ongoing neighborhood dispute.
