Andrew Perry broke into a home Tuesday evening and, with a gun in his hand, immediately demanded to know where “the man of the house” was, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
The victim fled her home in the 400 block of 10th Avenue West, in Bradenton, and called 911.
Authorities say she correctly identified the suspect because he’s her friend on Facebook.
While deputies searched the area for the 43-year-old suspect, they learned that his sister lives in the area near where the robbery occurred.
