Authorities in Winter Haven are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a violent convicted felon who attempted to rob a man at gunpoint earlier this week.

Reginald Leon Streeter, 18, has an extensive arrest record and was just released from state prison in September after serving 18 months on an armed robbery conviction.

According to a Winter Haven Police Department report the suspect approached Jamal Munson near the intersection of 7th St. Northeast and Sears Ave. just after 3 a.m. on October 28th.

Streeter demanded money from the suspect and when he replied that he did not have any the suspect struck him in the head with the butt of a handgun. Investigators say Streeter walked Munson to his home to get money, pointing a weapon at his head as they walked.

The suspect fled when other people in the neighborhood confronted him. Streeter is being sought on robbery with a firearm, armed kidnapping with a firearm and other weapons charges.

He is a black male, stands 5’10’’ tall, weighs 185 pounds and has short black hair and brown eyes. If you have any information on Streeter’s whereabouts please call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477).
