After a nationwide, exhaustive, four-day search for Farrakhan Muhammad, members of the United States Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, including task force members from the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, were able to take Muhammad into custody without incident.
“Arrests such as these are the precise reason why the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office partners with federal agencies,” said Citrus County Sheriff Mike Prendergast.
During the early morning hours of Feb. 17, Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies responded to a home in Crystal River after the occupants claimed to have been attacked by a suspect armed with a knife.
The suspect, 26-year-old Brett Carver, was later located by deputies at a local hospital where he was seeking treatment for wounds he had received from his own weapon during the attack.
Detectives Casalvieri and Bang with the Major Crimes Unit (MCU) responded to the hospital and began an investigation.
