Second suspect in armed home invasion in Jacksonville Beach arrested

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. — On Friday the Jacksonville Beach Police Department announced the arrest of a second suspect in a January home invasion.

Action News Jax first told you that a woman was held at gunpoint at a Jacksonville Beach home after a man posing as an Amazon delivery driver forced his way into the home. According to investigators, when the woman – who was pet sitting at the time of the incident–answered the door, the suspect told her she needed to sign for a package. When she went to grab a pen, the man forced his way in.

The fake Amazon driver, Christian Vazquez Ortiz, who was arrested earlier this month, ordered the victim to get into a bedroom closet, but the victim fought him and managed to escape.

Ortiz was charged with home invasion robbery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and aggravated assault.

Now, JBPRD says it has arrested a second suspect, Robert Leonardo Zaragoza Ortiz, and charged him with home invasion robbery.
