Ft. Pierce woman awakened with gun in face

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A Fort Pierce woman lives to tell her terrifying story of waking up by a stranger pointing a gun at her face.

"He was just like this. I couldn't see how big it was. He said get out of bed and give me all your money," said 59-year-old Mary Ann Pascarella.

Police say 18-year-old Jonathan Covello ordered Mary Ann around the house demanding cash, dumped out her purse, and rifled through her drawers.

She says he didn't make off with much -- just some jewelery and electronics.

The Fort Pierce Police Department says they also arrested two more teens. Investigators say they were the lookouts.

Thanks to the cell phone they allegedly stole, police caught up with the suspects within a half hour.
