The Port St. Lucie Police Department is seeking any information regarding an armed home invasion robbery that occurred on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at around 11:35 pm, at 2181 SE Wild Meadow Circle, Port St. Lucie.
The victim, 32 year old Shinoy Mailackel, was ambushed by a white male suspect as he walked to his apartment from the parking lot. The suspect pulled a gun on the victim and ordered him into his house. While in the house the victim and his wife, 28 year old Maya Augustine, were tied up as their two year old child slept in the other room. Another suspect then entered the apartment and both demanded money.
After giving the suspect all the money he had, Shinoy was ordered to drive to his store, which is the Dollar Store located at 3260 SE Dixie Highway, Stuart, Florida, to retrieve more money for the suspects. Shinoy was told that if he did not comply his wife and child would be shot. Shinoy then got into his car and was followed to the store by one of the suspects as the other suspect stayed at his house with his wife and child.
At the Dollar Store in Stuart, Shinoy retrieved more money and was directed to leave it in a specific location. He was then ordered to go to another employees house to get even more money. Shinoy feared for the safety of his employee and intentionally crashed his car in order to gain the attention of the police. Martin County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the scene of the crash and immediately contacted Port St. Lucie Police.
Port St. Lucie Police went to Shinoy’s house and located his wife still tied up in the house. Shinoy’s child was still asleep in the back bedroom unharmed.
