Two Florida women hit with felony charges for pelting man with glitter

A pair of Florida women were hit with felony charges after allegedly throwing containers of glitter at a man and covering his apartment during an argument.

Sarah Franks, 29, and Kaitlin O’Donovan, 27, were arguing with Jacob Colon at his home in Clearwater at around 3 a.m. on Monday.   

Colon was allegedly struck by the two women after the pair threw a container of glitter each at him before making their way inside his apartment and tossing more there, according to an arrest affidavit.

Both Franks and O’Donovan were later arrested, charged with burglary with assault or battery, and booked into Pinellas County Jail.

The relationship between the women and Colon, as well as the reason for the argument, still remain unclear.

According to the affidavit, the early morning attack began after the two women started arguing with Colon, who had been standing on his fenced balcony at the time. 

During the argument, the girls both hurled containers of glitter at him, striking him in the upper head and torso, according to the arrest affidavit. 

Franks then climbed over the ground-level fence and made her way inside Colon’s apartment where she allegedly continued to pelt him with more containers of glitter.

She then also unlocked the door for O’Donovan to let her in the apartment, and she also threw more containers at him, the arrest document states.

After the glitter attack, Franks also kicked a window in the apartment before fleeing the scene with O’Donovan, police said.

The pair were later arrested by local police after their getaway vehicle was traced back to their residence.

Officer Matt High with the Clearwater Police Department noted that the car was still ‘warm to the touch’ and traces of glitter were also seen inside the vehicle.

Franks and Donovan were arrested on charges of felony burglary with assault or battery. 

Additionally, Franks was charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief for breaking Colon’s window.

She has since been bonded out of jail after posting a $75,250 bail while O’Donovan remains in custody.

A judge has also ordered both women to have no future contact with Colon.
