Largo man accused of sexual assault, robbery

LARGO — A 38-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a woman and then taking her money was arrested Tuesday night, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

George Demetrius Baker of Largo faces charges of sexual battery and strong-arm robbery.

On Dec. 6, Baker forced a woman to the ground, threatened to kill her, sexually assaulted her and stole $30 from her wallet, according to an arrest affidavit.

Deputies linked Baker to the crime with a DNA sample, the affidavit said.

Baker was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where he remained Wednesday in lieu of $300,000 bail.
