The community of Minneola, Fla., has its own superhuman, as a young fellow named Rae Pitt. Hard of hearing and autistic, Pitt spends his days dressed as his venerated image Superman. He waves to bystanders and cars at a bustling intersection in Lake County, Fla. Generally, the community is glad to see and interact with Pitt, whose greatest strength is a smile and a warm wave.
That is the reason everybody nearby was so stunned when Pitt faced his first real-life baddie. As declared by nearby news station WFTV, Pitt was doing his daily superhuman patrol last Thursday when a man by the name of Tyler McCorvey, who witnesses depicted as “acting very strange,” felt bound to taunt and irritate the Minneola Superhero. McCorvey, 26, later told the police he went to the intersection particularly to “challenge Superman to a fight.”
In spite of his deafness and autism, Pitt was obviously aware of the reality he was being threatened, ridiculed, and in potential risk. He could send instant messages to his mom that somebody was attempting to hurt him and that he was terrified. When Pitt attempted to leave, McCorvey assaulted the unprotected 20-year-old Pitt, who was dressed in his Superman costume. McCorvey punched Pitt and then pummelled his head on a car.
Observers to the incident immediately raced to shield Pitt from further attack, while the suspect fled. Police supposedly captured McCorvey as he was fleeing with a waste can on his head. Regardless of whether that is his super-villain personality is unsubstantiated. The man faces charges including abuse of an elderly or debilitated individual, which he will probably add to the abusive behavior at home and battery arrests he has on his rap sheet already.
Like any real superhero, Pitt came back to duty the very next day.
