Deputies say woman raped after break-in

Authorities are searching for two men who broke into a home at gunpoint and raped a woman. The crime happened about 9:30 p.m. Friday at a residence in New Port Richey. The Pasco Sheriff's Office did not disclose the location of the attack. The agency released information about the crime on Wednesday only after the Times heard about the incident and questioned the agency. "At this point we don't have reason to believe the public is in danger or else we certainly would have notified the media about this," said Pasco Sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin. It appears there were at least two adult women inside the home. The men got inside by pointing a gun at one woman, Tobin said. It appears the victims did not know the men who "rummaged through the residence and stole money and other household items," Tobin said. Anyone with information is urged to leave a tip on pascosheriff.com or call (727) 844-7711. Tips can be left anonymously.

Father accused of injuring his baby

A 20-year-old father is accused of breaking his baby's collarbones and ribs. Joshua Ronald Davidson, who is 6 foot 5 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds, at first told investigators he accidentally dropped the baby while trying to answer the phone, but then later said he didn't know how the child became injured, a report states. The baby was brought to the hospital Aug. 2 with a newly broken clavicle and an old rib fracture, the Pasco Sheriff's Office said. The department did not release other information, including the sex of the baby. Davidson, of 4401 Plaza Drive in Holiday, was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated child abuse. He is being held at the Pasco jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Unwanted hugs lead to punches

All Billy Sindorf wanted, authorities say, was to hug some people and talk the dream he had about Lucifer. But no one at Club Chill Chamber wanted to hear about it, a report states. They also didn't want his hugs. "Shut up," one patron said about 2 a.m. Tuesday. This angered Sindorf, a truck driver in town from Kansas, the Pasco Sheriff's Office said, so he threw a glass at the person. A staffer called 911, which made Sindorf, 44, even more enraged. He punched the bartender, gnawed on someone's arm and threw bottles, glasses and bar stools, a report states. Sindorf was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He was being held at the Pasco jail in lieu of $5,450 bail.
