St. Petersburg man faces charge in hit and run involving pedestrians

ST. PETERSBURG — Police have arrested a man they say hit two pedestrians with his vehicle and drove away Wednesday night.

Cedric D. Sapp, 24, of 1741 55th Ter. S, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injury.

Authorities say his westbound 2006 Ford hit two men about 11:30 p.m. near Ferg's Sports Bar and Grill, 1320 Central Ave.

Sapp was not cited for causing the accident. Carlos Figueroa, 27, of Eustis and Daniel Ziecke, 22, of Kissimmee had stepped into the road where there was no crosswalk, said police spokesman Chip Wells.

The two men were treated for minor injuries at Bayfront Medical Center.

Sapp remained in the Pinellas County jail on Thursday in lieu of $5,000 bail.
