Florida Man Tries To Set Motel On Fire To 'Barbecue All The Child Molesters,' Police Say

Jorge Porto-Sierra said he was going to "barbeque all the child molesters and kill them," police said.

A Florida man allegedly smashed motel windows and poured gasoline into the rooms while screaming about how he would burn "all the child molesters" to death.

Jorge Porto-Sierra, 50, was arrested March 7 and charged with four counts of attempted premeditated murder, aggravated assault, two counts of criminal mischief, and burglary, according to an arrest report obtained by Oxygen.com.

According to the report, a man was standing outside his room at the Friendly Village Inn in Kissimmee when Porto-Sierra jumped out of a car screaming expletives. The man ran inside his room for safety and locked the deadbolt, but Porto-Sierra started kicking and banging the front door.

When the man didn't open the door, Porto-Sierra ran to his car and grabbed a cane, which he used to smash the window while yelling, "You're going to die child molester I'm coming in." He poured gasoline into the room through the window, all with a cigarette in his hand.

"I'm going to burn your place down," Porto-Sierra said, according to the report. “All child molesters deserve to die."

The man's roommate was also in the room, and they both escaped out the back window.

While this was happening, a couple drove up to the motel and saw Porto-Sierra pouring gasoline.

The driver said Porto-Sierra spotted him and ran toward him with the gas can in his hand, throwing gas on him through the window. The driver tried to flee, but Porto-Sierra got into his car and rammed into the driver three times. The passenger told the deputy who wrote the report she thought she was going to die.

That's when the deputy pulled up behind Porto-Sierra's black Ford Focus. Porto-Sierra got out of the car with his hands in the air and immediately surrendered. He told the deputy that he was there to "barbeque all the child molesters and kill them."

The deputy asked Porto-Sierra why he wanted to do that.

Porto-Sierra replied, "They raped kids, they are child molesters that live here and deserve to die."

The deputy then asked Porto-Sierra why he didn't go through with it and he replied, "Because you got here too soon." 

WESH 2 News in Orlando confirmed at least two of the four victims are convicted sex offenders.

Porto-Sierra is being held at the Osceola County Jail without bond.
