Glitter Attack

4/5 UPDATE: Prosecutors will not pursue glitter bombing case

JANUARY 11--Two Florida women are each facing a felony burglary charge after allegedly perpetrating a 3 AM glitter attack on a male victim, police report.

Investigators say Sarah Franks, 29, and Kaitlin O’Donovan, 27, arrived early yesterday morning at the Clearwater residence of Jacob Colon and began arguing with him while he was standing on his fenced balcony.

Franks and Donovan, cops allege, each threw a container of glitter at Colon, who was struck “in the upper torso and head.” Arrest affidavits do not reveal the nature of the argument or the relationship between the parties.

After pelting Colon, Franks climbed over the ground level fence and entered Colon’s apartment, where she “engaged the victim again by throwing more containers of glitter at him,” cops charge. Franks then allegedly unlocked the front door to allow O’Donovan to enter the residence.

Once inside, O’Donovan threw additional containers of glitter at Colon, according to the affidavits, which indicate that O’Donovan and Franks share an apartment about two miles from Colon’s home.

Upon completing the glitter bombing, Franks kicked a window in Colon’s residence until it broke. The pair then drove away from the apartment complex.

Since it appears Colon was able to identify his assailants, police arrested Franks and O’Donovan about an hour after the glitter attack. The getaway car, police reported, was tracked back to the duo’s home. The auto “was still warm to the touch and glitter was observed on the inside of the vehicle,” Officer Matthew High noted.

Seen above Franks (left) and O’Donovan were arrested on a felony charge of burglary with assault or battery. Franks was also charged with criminal mischief for allegedly breaking Colon’s window.

Franks bonded out of the jail Monday morning after posting $75,250 bond. O’Donovan remains in custody at the Pinellas County lockup. A judge has ordered both women to have no contact with Colon. (2 pages)
