PORT RICHEY — A husband and wife have been arrested in connection with a Feb. 18 stabbing and beating.

Jose Anazco, a 26-year-old Latin King gang member, and Nitza De Jesus, his 36-year-old wife, were arrested Thursday on charges of burglary with assault or battery.

The attack happened at 8027 Fox Hollow Drive, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Authorities say Anazco and De Jesus forced their way into the home, saying the people there owed them money. Both are accused of beating and kicking a woman and stabbing a man. The man was stabbed in the chest and arm. He survived. De Jesus is also accused of stealing the woman's cell phone.

Anazco and De Jesus, of 8506 Moulton Drive in Port Richey, are being held in the Pasco jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
