Marion County, FL: A Walmart security guard spotted an older man, later identified as Manuel Rodriguez, 80, who wore rose blush, cherry red lipstick and dressed as a woman, popping off the tags of merchandise and then stuffing items into a purse that had also been swiped from the store’s shelf, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Holiday, FL: A 54-year-old Florida man has been arrested after allegedly trying to perform an exorcism on his 80-year-old girlfriend.
Police say on Monday, David Edward Benes grabbed the woman at the home they share in Holiday, holding her down and telling her he was going to “exorcise her and get the devil out of her,” the Tampa Bay Times reported.
He then allegedly took her car keys and “dismantled the garage” to prevent her from leaving, according to an affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun. The complaint also states he took the batteries out of all the phones in the residence so she couldn’t call for help.
The woman said that when she fell asleep, Benes began “exorcising” her, though it’s unclear from the complaint exactly what that entailed.
It’s also unclear who ultimately contacted police, but according to the Times, authorities found her crying outside of the home with bruises and scratches on her arms. Benes was passed out drunk on the couch at the time and was charged with battery on a person 65 years or older and false imprisonment.
