Man has sex with woman, then steals her gaming consoles, deputies say

Suspect says victim was his 'side girlfriend,' gets her name wrong

OCALA, Fla. – A man had sex with a woman he had met on the dating site Plenty of Fish, then returned to her home, held the occupants at gunpoint and stole several gaming consoles, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

The victim said she had sex with Kareem Mutcherson, 23, then around 1 a.m. Monday, he returned to the home on Silver Lane in Ocala armed with a gun and wearing a bandana over his face, the arrest report said.

Mutcherson forced the woman inside at gunpoint and took a Wii and PlayStation from the front room, deputies said. He then forced her to unplug a white Xbox from the living room, according to the report.

The victim started yelling so the other occupants in the home could help her. Four people, including a juvenile, exited the bedrooms.

"Come around the corner, the guy was pointing a gun in my face," one of the those people said.

She didn't want to be identified but said she was sleeping in the home with her parents and nephew.

"I turned around and tried to push my mother back in the bedroom. Told my dad someone was trying to rob the house. Reached for the phone and dialed 911. Locked my self in the bathroom," the woman said.

She said the woman who Mutcherson had been romantically involved with dated her brother for seven years and they have a child together.

She was living at the home as well.

A man who lives in the home confronted Mutcherson, hoping he would leave, but instead he pistol-whipped the 68-year-old man, deputies said. 

He fled the residence with the three gaming systems and approximately 10 games, officials said. A deputy pulled Mutcherson over as he was driving away from the area because his front headlight was out, according to the affidavit.

"He [deputy] just thought that something was wrong with that car. There was something in his gut to pull it over. He pulled it over; it was our suspect," Marion County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lauren Lettelier said. 

A child was in the vehicle with Mutcherson, along with the gaming systems that had been reported stolen, deputies said.

Mutcherson, of Gainesville, said he was at the Ocala home having sex with his "side girlfriend," who he called by the wrong name twice. He said he met the woman on the dating website Plenty of Fish and Monday's encounter was their third or fourth time meeting in person.

"They had seen each other that evening and then later on that evening he came back and did the home invasion robbery. With the juvenile in the back seat of his car while he went inside to commit the robbery," Lettelier said. 

Mutcherson told deputies that the victim gave him the gaming consoles as a birthday present. 

"Right now the story he's giving isn't matching up to the evidence that we have, obviously. He said he didn't even commit the robbery, he didn't have a gun, he didn't have all this. But we do have enough evidence to charge him with a home invasion at this point," Lettelier said.

The child was placed with family and is doing well.

Mutcherson is charged with robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery on a person 65 years of age or older.
