PCSO detectives are seeking the public's help in an occupied burglary and battery that occurred on Lake Millsite Road near U.S. 17 in Bartow.

On Saturday morning, March 24, 2018, the victim was home alone when she heard a knock at the back door. When she opened the door, an unknown male suspect told the victim he was lost and needed to use the phone. After the victim handed him her phone, the suspect shoved the victim to the ground and took off running. The phone was later recovered.
