Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives released a composite sketch of one of two suspects who beat a man in his own home with billy clubs until they were interrupted by the victim’s girlfriend. The motive remains unclear.
Nicholas Gouzoulis, 46, heard a knock at his door just after 10 p.m. on June 21. He went to answer it only to have it pushed in by two men carrying clubs. The two beat Gouzoulis on the face, head and arms with the clubs. The victim collapsed onto the floor, but the beating continued until his girlfriend heard the commotion. The assailants drove away in a silver, late-model Buick Enclave. The victim worked with BSO detective John McMahon to create a composite sketch of one of the two suspects.
