Homeless man is misidentified as today's bank robber

By LATISHA R. GRAY

SARASOTA - Through the glass door at the Yuppie Puppie dog grooming shop =
where he works, Richard Sedlack saw a police officer run up to a =
homeless man and start punching him.

It was Friday afternoon, two hours after a bank had been robbed a few =
doors down. According to police, a bank manager had pointed the homeless =
man out to officers, saying he looked like the robber.

Sedlack, 51, said all he saw was the officer in attack mode.

"The officer grabbed the guy, pulled him off his bicycle and threw him =
to the ground," Sedlack said. "He had him down and just started whaling =
on his head. He punched him three or four times in the head."

Police identified the homeless man as Chynquy Calixte, 49. He's no =
longer a suspect in the bank robbery.=20

But Calixte was arrested on a felony concealed weapon charge after =
police found a steak knife tucked in with some of his belongings. He was =
also charged with resisting arrest.

"Officers ordered him to stop and he wouldn't listen," said Jay Frank, =
police spokesman. "The officer had a right to put his hands on him when =
he wouldn't follow commands."

Police say Calixte fought back.

Sedlack said all he saw was Calixte trying to cover up as the officer =
hit him. Officers also shocked Calixte with a Taser stun gun during the =
scuffle.=20
