A composite sketch of a man who Lee County Deputies say stabbed and robbed a man at a Fort Myers condo has yet to be posted on the property for residents.

"He's armed, and he's dangerous," said Trish Routte, Crimestoppers Spokesperson. 

Routte almost finds it hard to believe the composite sketch of the suspect accused in the attack hasn't been posted anywhere on the Whiskey Creek Condos.

"People need to lay eyes on this photo. This is a drawing that the victim sat down with an artist," said Routte. "According to the victim this is a very good likeness of the man. 

Investigators say the suspect is a white male in his 20's or 30's, with a strong northeastern accent, a muscular build, and short dark hair. 

A chopper flew over the condo, shortly after the attack on August 12th as detectives searched for the stabber.

Friday police released a sketch of the suspect but now days later it still hasn't been posted anywhere on the property - not even the elevator where the attack occurred. 

Building management agents from P & M management in Fort Myers, told Fox 4 during a phone call that the sketches can't be posted on the property without the approval from the Condo Association's board of directors.

They also said the posters could deter buyers and may reduce the condo's property value.

"They need to see this picture, and until he is identified and until he is arrested there is obviously the threat that he could do this again," said Routte.
