'Sweet Talker' Shot At Blind Date In Robbery Attempt

Crystal Skiba is facing multiple charges, “including attempted first-degree murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle, and possession of a controlled substance, among others,” the Hardee County Sheriff’s Office said. Investigators say a “seemingly innocent online connection turned into a nightmare” when a victim drove from Arcadia to a woman’s home in Wauchula. “What began as flirtatious banter quickly escalated into a harrowing ordeal. … The victim, whose identity is being withheld for privacy, was invited inside where he was met with unexpected aggression,” the sheriff’s office reported. “Skiba allegedly attempted to seduce him before revealing her true intentions. It became apparent to the victim that he was in a dangerous situation when Skiba demanded payment and brandished a handgun, blocking his exit.” He managed to escape, but Skiba then began firing shots at his vehicle as he sped away, officials said. crystal skiba, hardee county sheriff
