A 19-year-old was arrested after police said he attacked a security guard with a deadly weapon at a St. Johns County subdivision.
Deputies were called to Sea Colony Parkway on Sunday after a 911 caller said a security guard was being attacked inside the office.
The caller said the man, later identified as Jake Dewerth of St. Augustine Beach, may have had a rifle.
Officers found the office empty with signs that a violent crime had occurred.
The 46-year-old security guard approached officers and had signs of significant trauma to his face, officers said.
He was taken to Flagler Hospital.
Officers set up a perimeter and searched the area.
They found Dewerth, who matched witness descriptions of the suspect in the security office attack, police said.
