LANTANA, FL (WFLX) - Patty Steebuck thought she was helping a homeless veteran get back on his feet, now she is terrified. She loves the Army because her son is a soldier, and she loves dogs, so she took a homeless man into her home.
Now, Patty Steebuck's ear lobe is ripped, she has cuts on her arms, and bruises on her body. She says John Vigil attacked her Tuesday night when she asked him to leave her home. "He said, 'I'll leave when I'm ready. You can't do nothing to me.' Grabbed me by my hair, threw me to the floor, smacked my head repeatedly, and said, 'Is this what you want! do you like this'" says the alleged victim.
He's been staying here for about a month, but, Patty says, things took a turn about two weeks ago when she started having problems with his dogs. According to police reports, officers have been to the home before for arguments.
Animal care and control removed Vigil's dogs Wednesday morning, and, they say, they will hold them for 10 days.
All of Vigil's belongings remain at Steebuck's home and an officer will accompany him here to get them if he bonds out.
