Orlando police arrested a man they say was trying to break into a home and attack the people inside after being caught by the homeowner peering into the home.


The State Attorney's Office said on Thursday that charges were dropped earlier this month in the case of a man who had been accused of peering into a home and getting into a fight.

Robert Dann-Goldberg, 50, was arrested in April on charges of burglary of a dwelling with assault or battery in the incident on Dockside Drive.  The charges were dropped on August 19, officials said.

Police said shortly after the April incident that the victim approached Dann-Goldberg after he said Dann-Goldberg was looking into his home from the screened-in porch. The victim told police he recognized Dann-Goldberg from a few days earlier when his daughter was painting her nails in the porch and said a man was staring at her.

The victim confronted Dann-Goldberg, who was hit in the face, police said.

Dann-Goldberg grabbed the victim's urinary stoma, a medical device for a bladder issue, and threatened to kill the victim, according to police.

Dann-Goldberg said he was taking his dog for a walk and claims he was attacked by Richard Ortiz.  Dann-Goldberg told police Ortiz also kicked his dog.

In their report, police listed Ortiz as the victim, and charged Dann-Goldberg with assault.

The State Attorney's Office provided no details about why the charges were dropped.
