BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Melbourne Police Department has arrested Michael Donato Medina, 24, Saturday morning around 1 a.m. after allegedly committing an armed robbery at 1808 Jackson Street in Melbourne.

The suspect approached two victims, pointing a revolver at them and demanded money as they were standing in front of their house, according to a Melbourne police spokesperson.

Medina had a black shirt wrapped around his head to conceal his identity. The victims were then forced up to the doorway of the house where a struggle ensued and the firearm discharged.

The victims were able to wrestle the firearm away from the suspect, shooting him once. They then detained him until officers arrived on scene.
