Titus O’Neil issued the following statement to NBC affiliate WFLA News Channel 8 regarding the scary incident that occurred at the home of Sonya Deville over the weekend:
“I have spoken to her and I’m glad she’s safe and I’m thankful and grateful that the sheriff’s office took care of the situation immediately,” O’Neil said. “Celebrity status aside this is sickening. I am a product of a sexual assault and have zero-tolerance or respect for any human being that would violate a person’s privacy and or personal space.”
As we reported here at WrestlingNews.com, Phillip A. Thomas II, 24, was arrested early Sunday morning at the home of Deville and charged with aggravated stalking, armed burglary of a dwelling, attempted armed kidnapping and criminal mischief.
The suspect was armed with a knife and mace. He also had plastic zip ties, duct tape and other items he told deputies he planned to use to take the homeowner hostage.
Thomas is being held without bond.
On Sunday night, Deville issued her own statement where she thanked law enforcement.
