At approximately 10:41 pm Tuesday night, Orange County deputies responded to an address on South Central Avenue in South Apopka in reference to an Aggravated Battery via an unknown substance. There, they met with the victim who stated he had an unknown substance thrown in his face by an unknown suspect, a black male in his 20’s.

The victim has been identified as Donte Jones, 27.

Jones was transported to ORMC, where he is suffering from serious injury to his eyes from the assault, and the unknown substance.

It is believed the incident took place in the 600 block of 13thStreet in South Apopka.

Detectives are actively working the case.

No other details have been released. The Apopka Voice will update this article as more information is known.


  1. Very bad things are happening in our area! The death of the lady found on Lust Road, near Lake Apopka’s roadside drive, the questionable death of the lady that worked at Lowes Home Improvement, home invasions, burglaries, kidnappings, shootings, and now this! I hope this man’s eyes will be alright. This is very scary. This seems somewhat like the powders that have been appearing in correspondence and mail up in Lake County, in many different places. I do wonder if it is possible that it might be the same people, or not? And why, is the bigger question?
