Kissimmee, FL – A Florida man was charged with multiple counts of attempted premeditated murder, after he confessed that he planned to burn several sex offenders to death by lighting a hotel on fire.
“You’re going to die, child molester!” Porto-Sierra screamed, according to witnesses.
He then doused the door with the fuel, and broke a window to pour more gasoline inside the room.
Two individuals inside the room were able to escape out a rear window, police said.
Porto-Sierra then jumped into his vehicle, and rammed it into a car that had two people sitting inside.
After he struck the victims’ car three times, he jumped out, and poured more gasoline into their vehicle.
Witnesses said that Porto-Sierra was carrying a cigarette as the incident unfolded.
“They raped kids...they deserve to die,” he told police, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Investigators then asked Porto-Sierra why he didn’t ignite the gasoline.
“Because you got here too soon,” he replied.
At least three of the individuals Porto-Sierra targeted were, in fact, convicted sex offenders, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
He was subsequently charged with multiple offenses, including false imprisonment, burglary, and attempted murder.
Porto-Sierra was being held at the Osceola County Jail without bond.
