Incident at home in central, unincorporated St. Lucie County Tuesday afternoon results in seven arrests on 25 charges, and three deputies treated for minor injuries
What began as a noise complaint Tuesday afternoon at a home in the River Park area of central, unincorporated St. Lucie County resulted in the arrest of four adults and three juveniles on 25 criminal charges, including 20 felonies, and sent three deputies to an area hospital with minor injuries, according to St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

Five times in November, deputies had visited 130 El Cito Court because of noise complaints by neighbors.

Deputies were called again to the home for another noise complaint Tuesday afternoon, Sheriff Mascara said. Deputy Supreet Cheema, joined by Deputies Christopher Mock and Christopher Gordineer, arrested seven residents of the home on 20 felonies and five misdemeanors for a total of 25 criminal charges.

Deputies arrested Janet April Moore, 34, for three counts each of aggravated battery on an officer and resisting an officer with violence, one count of escape and one count of depriving an officer of means of protection, all felonies, and two misdemeanors: resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.

Deputies also arrested Anthony Pittman, 18, Rhonda Matthews, 54, Jamal Ware, 20, and Alex Pittman, 17, for three felonies each: battery on a police officer, depriving an officer of means of protection and aiding an escape.

In addition, two female juveniles living at the home were arrested on misdemeanor charges. A 14-year-old girl was charged with failure to render aid to an officer, and a 17-year-old girl was charged with failure to aid an officer and obstruction of justice.

Deputies took the four adults to the St. Lucie County jail. They also took the three juveniles (Alex Pittman and the two girls) to the St. Lucie Regional Juvenile Detention Center, Fort Pierce, a facility operated by the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.
