Woman Sunbathing Ambushed By Robbers In Miami Beach, Police Say

Two men are in jail accused of attacking, robbing and threatening to kill and rape a woman who was sunbathing on the beach early Monday morning in Miami Beach.  

Police say the victim struggled with the thieves and both men punched the woman and began searching her clothing for any valuables. The men took the woman's car keys, two ankle bracelets, a necklace, and an iPhone 7 Plus with a wallet case.

The victim also told police that one of the men took off her shirt, causing her sports bra to lift above her neck, and lowered her workout pants. The suspects allegedly let the woman go after she pleaded with them.  

Once the men did leave, the victim flagged down a security guard who called 911. Officers responded to the scene in the 2100 block of the beach just before 4:30 a.m.

Responding officers found one of the men, 26-year-old Joseph Oliver, trying to use the victim's cell phone to get a ride with Uber. Police say the victim identified Oliver as the main aggressor in the attack. 

Oliver admitted his involvement in the incident. 

Police identified a second suspect, 30-year-old Nesly Guerrier, who admitted to also meeting the victim on the beach. 

The victim told detectives that the men told her they had a gun while they were threatening her, but said that she never saw a weapon. 

Both men were arrested on charges of armed robbery, false imprisonment and attempted sexual battery.
