Satan Strikes in Port St. Lucie

Homeless man who claims to be devil attacks another man

The devil is apparently alive and well, living on the streets in Port St. Lucie and attacking people outside convenience stores.

Satan revealed himself yesterday in the form of 53-year-old John Eugene Yale Jr., a homeless Treasure Coast man with a short temper.

Police say Yale began speaking with a man outside a convenience store, then suddenly attacked the man, shoving his thumbs into the victim's eyes, causing them to bleed.

During the fracas, Yale shouted, "I am the Devil and I am going to kill you."

The prince of darkness was charged with aggravated battery and was being held on $20,000 bail.
