Mall Security Guard Hit By Car After Catching Couple Having Sex In Parking Lot

Paradise by the dashboard lights? Not for a mall security guard in Southwest Florida who was struck by a car after catching the couple inside having sex.

Coconut Point Mall security officers Jeremy Abdo and Steven Pepin were making rounds through a parking garage when the incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. April 8, according to an incident report from the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

The two guards noticed a couple having sex in a black Jaguar and got out of their vehicle to approach. Pepin went to the driver's side window to direct them out of the car, and Abdo went to the rear of the vehicle, the pair told police.

Though the driver was aware Abdo was behind the car, he put the car in reverse, striking Abdo in the knees before fleeing.

The guards were able to get the license plate number of the car; it is not yet known if an arrest has been made.
