Two women are facing federal charges after allegedly breaking into a man’s apartment and throwing glitter on him during an argument. 

Sarah Franks, 29, and Kaitlyn O’Donovan, 27, were arrested on Monday, January 10, after they turned up at the victim’s apartment just before 3.00am local time.


The women are said to have started arguing with the man while he stood on his fenced patio on the ground level of the apartment building in Clearwater, Florida, before they threw a container full of glitter in his direction and struck him on the head and upper torso.

According to arrest affidavits cited by Fox 13 News, Franks then allegedly jumped over the patio fence and entered the victim’s apartment, where she proceeded to throw more containers of glitter at him.

O’Donovan is said to have walked to the front door of the apartment while Franks unlocked it from the inside, after which the two women continued to throw even more containers of glitter at the man. Franks allegedly broke a window by kicking it, then the two women got in their car and sped away from the scene.


Investigators tracked the car back to the women’s apartment and found it was still warm to the touch after they allegedly fled the scene. Police officers found glitter inside the vehicle, and spotted Franks walking around in the same clothing the victim described her to be wearing at the time of the incident.

Both Franks and O’Donovan were arrested and charged with felony burglary with assault or battery. Franks was also hit with a misdemeanour charge of criminal mischief for allegedly breaking the apartment window.

The two women were taken to the Pinellas County Jail and had their bond set at $75,000. Franks was later released, but O’Donovan remains behind bars.

A judge has also banned both Franks and O’Donovan from having any future contact with the victim.

The relationship between the two women and the victim remains unclear, as does the reason for their argument.

It is also not known whether Franks and O’Donovan arrived at the apartment with the intention of throwing the containers full of glitter, but the shiny material is known to be incredibly irritating to deal with, with some companies even offering the opportunity for people to annoy their enemies by sending packages full of glitter in the post.
