A violent home invader called his victim just before heading to jail in order to apologize for his actions.
On the 15th of May 2014, three armed men broke into the home of Chris Bates in Boynton Beach, Florida. Bates was present at the time and things became so violent that the man had to be hospitalized with severe head injuries. Shortly after the incident occurred Bates was able to recognize one of his attackers as “Little D”. Little D turned out to be a guy named Cleveland Smith. The other two criminals are still on the run, but Smith was caught. According to official reports, he called Bates and apologized for the break in and the attack. He also tried to justify his actions, stating that the other two invaders were holding guns and were threatening to kill him if he didn’t cooperate.
Mr. Bates’ fiancé told the media she personally couldn’t accept the apology, since she was afraid that her future husband could have lost his life in the attack.
