Man accused of mugging, tying up elderly woman at gunpoint denied bond

DANIA BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - One of three men accused of attacking and mugging a Dania Beach elderly woman inside her own home has been denied bond while his accomplices remain at large.

According to police, 35-year-old Daniel Carter was arrested, Thursday, on accusations he and two others stormed into a 74-year-old woman’s Dania Beach home, tied her up and robbed her at gunpoint.

Deputies said the suspect and two others broke into Louise Pfister’s home on the night of Dec. 10.

That victim said she was sitting at home, around 8 a.m., when the three men busted through the back door. Pfister said they immediately pointed a gun at her and said, “If you move, we will shoot you.”

They then tied her up with cables from the electronics inside the home and then rummaged through the house. They stole a safe, cash, three cell phones, at least one TV and an iPad.

The homeowner said the robbers just rattled her sense of security. “They got in through the back door, three of them, put the gun to my head, and they just came in and went through the house,” Pfister said. “They took everything they wanted. It was really scary.”

Carter is being held without bond on home invasion and elderly abuse charges. His alleged accomplices remain at large.

If you have any information on this home invasion robbery that could lead investigators to the accomplices, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
