Largo police seek man suspected in sexual battery

Times staff

LARGO — Police are searching for a man they say raped a woman Aug. 18 in her home in the vicinity of Sixth Street NW and West Bay Drive.

Police obtained arrest warrants for Timothy J. Davenport, 28, for three charges related to the sexual battery. Davenport, who was a resident of the victim's neighborhood but whom she did not know, broke into the home at about 5:15 a.m. on Aug. 18 through an unlocked bathroom window, police said. He then sexually battered the victim while armed with a knife.

Officers describe Davenport as a white male, about 5-feet, 7-inches with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt, mask and dark colored pants. Police said he has left his most recent address but may still be in the area.

Largo police are asking anyone with information to call (727) 586-7348.
