Police: Man In Dress Shattered Window When Refused A Ride


ORLANDO, Fla. (UPI) — Police in Florida said they are searching for a man in women’s clothes who allegedly threw a drink and a rock at a car when he was refused a ride.

Orlando police said the man, who was wearing a dress, high heels and a wig, asked for a ride at an Orlando intersection Tuesday and he allegedly became angry when the women in the car refused, WESH-TV reported Thursday.

Corsica Cleveland, the driver of the car, told police the man threw a drink at the car while she was driving away. She said the man chased the car and caught up at a nearby intersection where he threw a piece of concrete through the front passenger window.

The glass shattered and the passenger narrowly evaded being hit by the chunk of concrete, Cleveland told police.

“Nobody was cut, but we had like glass in our hair and in our clothes,” Cleveland said.

Cleveland said her 5-year-old daughter was in the back seat of the car at the time.

“We were scared. We were in fear for our lives. We were scared because he could have had a gun or something because he had a purse,” Cleveland said.

Police said they are searching for the man, who investigators said might frequent the area.
