Wounded suspect was free on bond

Web-posted: 10:23 p.m. Aug. 18, 2000

CORAL SPRINGS -- The man who was shot after a woman's home was broken into on Thursday has a lengthy arrest record and was due in court Friday on an attempted murder charge, according to police records.

Luis A. Blassini, 20, was in critical condition at North Broward Medical Center on Friday, recovering from gunshot wounds received in a home at the Glen Walk subdivision on Thursday afternoon.

Blassini was due in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on Friday morning on charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault in a July 14 incident, the latest and most serious in a long list of criminal charges including burglary, grand theft and trespassing.

He was out on a $20,000 bond. The suspect is refusing to talk to investigators, but police are hoping the release of his name will help them identify a second man who broke into the home Thursday afternoon on Northwest 117th Avenue, just west of Coral Ridge Drive and south of Atlantic Boulevard.

The burglars apparently did not know anyone was home and were surprised to find an armed woman on the second floor. The woman opened fire, wounding one man, police said. The other burglar escaped.

Police have not released the woman's name. She was identified by neighbors and property records as Mindy Binkley.

Blassini was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and may face charges in other recent burglaries in Coral Springs, said police Capt. Jeff Maslan. Blassini was also wanted for grand theft.

The woman who shot Blassini will not face charges, Maslan said.

The other suspect was described as a white man in his early 20s, about 5-feet-10 with a stocky build and a short crew cut with dark hair. He escaped in a silver, late-model, two-door Honda or Acura with chrome rims, white taillight lenses, tinted windows and a sunroof.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 954-346-1291.
