Suspect in Hollywood rape and burglaries faces extradition to Broward County

The man accused of breaking into two Hollywood homes in an upscale gated community in December and raping a woman at knifepoint will be brought to Broward County to face prosecution, police said.

Shawn Wright, 27, is jailed in Miami-Dade County on narcotics and weapons charges. No date has yet been set for his extradition to the Broward Main Jail, said Miranda Grossman, spokeswoman for the Hollywood Police Department.

The same day the crimes were committed, Dec. 12, in the Hollywood Oaks community in the northwest section of the city, police released crisp and clear surveillance video of the suspect holding a flashlight in his mouth, slipping gloves onto his hands, jimmying open a glass-paneled door and slipping inside.

Hollywood police initially withheld that a rape had been committed until after the South Florida Sun Sentinel made a public records request.
