Two suspects have been arrested in the recent beating and shooting of an ATM repairman, North Miami Police said.
Ricardo Eloi, 27, and Stanley Fleurant, 19, robbed serviceman Juan Carlos Canales, 27, at gunpoint when he was returning from work to his home at 13390 NE 7th Ave. on Sunday, May 5 at about 12:20 a.m., according to police.
The victim identified the two suspects involved on Tuesday, North Miami Police said in a statement. Police from North Miami Beach Police helped to obtain the information.
Canales was beaten and stuffed in the trunk of his company car, a gray Ford Fiesta, North Miami Police spokesman Maj. Neal Cuevas said last week. Canales managed to get out of the trunk, but his attackers caught him, beat him again and shot him, according to police.
Eloi and Fleurant left the victim for dead, police said. Investigators later found his car dumped at 170 NE 6th Ave.
Canales remains hospitalized in serious condition, police said.
Fleurant faces numerous charges including second-degree attempted murder and third-degree grand theft, and he and Eloi both face charges of armed carjacking, attempted kidnapping with a weapon, and using a firearm while committing a felony, according to online Miami-Dade Corrections records.
Both men are being held on no bond and it wasn’t immediately known whether they have attorneys.
