7-year-old hid in locked room when armed suspects invade Deltona home


Reports say several armed, masked suspects entered a Central Florida home and tied up several adult victims. However, a child hid undetected inside a locked bedroom.

Deputies arrested 3 people who have been identified as 30-year-old Jermaine Oliver, 39-year-old John Anderson, and 32-year-old Derrick Mathis.


According to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened just after 10 p.m. on Saturday on Eden Drive. Deputies said the suspects approached the open garage of the home and confronted two victims. Records show the armed suspects entered the home and retrieved other victims and took them to the garage, where they tied their hands and made them sit down.

Deputies were called to the scene. The suspect fled the house after finding out that someone inside the home called 911. Deputies found a seven-year-old child hiding in the house.

As per the reports, the suspects are being held in jail on no bond.
