BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Real Estate agents continue to act badly in Boca, with another Realtor seeing the inside of a residence he can’t sell. Michael Krones of the 2700 block of NE 25th Terrace was arrested charged with “burglary with assault or battery” and “felony battery” by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
According to an arrest report:
“The victim was lying in her driveway with blood covering her face. She stated that her landlord, Michael Krones, showed up at the residence without giving due notice. She stated that she is afraid of Krones and he often comes to the residence unannounced and yells at her for no reason. Krones entered on to the property without the victim’s permission and then entered the backyard of the property what is fenced in. Krones then knocked on the back door to the property and asked to speak to (the victim). The victim then answered the door with a flashlight and a can of mace in her hand because she was scared of Krones. The victim advised that when she opened the back door to the residence Krones took a step into the residence and struck her in the face with a flashlight that he was holding. The victim did not use the pepper spray and advised it does not work.
The victim was disoriented by the strike and attempted to push Krones away, however Krones grabbed her by the hair and attempted to drag her away from the house. The victim stated that she attempted to scratch Krones. Krones then got on top of the victim and continued to strike her in the head with his fists.”
Police add in the arrest report:
“Krones denied the allegations and stated that he did not touch or strike (the victim). Krones claimed that he was pepper sprayed by the victim and was trying to get away from her. The can of mace was found on the ground in the backyard of the residence and did not appear to have been used. Krones was perspiring, but his face did not appear red or irritated.”
Krones remains in the Palm Beach County Jail. While bond for the battery was set at $3,000, no bond has been set for the burglary and assault charge.
The 64-year-old currently holds an active “real estate broker sales associate” license with the State of Florida.
