Jacksonville police arrest a machete-wielding man who tried to break into two homes in the Fort Caroline area before he got into the third one and did some serious damage.
According to a police report, Luis Alicea ripped the toilet from the upstairs bathroom floor, which flooded the kitchen below, then destroyed parts of the master bedroom, broke a window, and fell from the second floor of the home on Heidi Road where police finally arrested him.
The report says Alicea was foaming at the mouth and screaming "kill me, kill me, I want to die." It says he appeared to be on some sort of psychotic drug.
Police estimate he did about $22,000 worth of damage.
When they finally got him into custody the suspect had a laceration to his wrist, arms, and legs. We're told Alicea was Baker Acted due to the fact he was yelling "Kill me, kill me".
The suspect had been arrested March 10th for burglary and battery in a similar incident.
