Man arrested in connection with robbery on Pinellas Trail

ST. PETERSBURG — A 60-year-old man was arrested Sunday in connection with a robbery on the Pinellas Trail.

Police said Timothy Foster Young of St. Petersburg demanded a cell phone from a woman at about 12:35 p.m. Sunday on the Pinellas Trail near 24th Street S.

Young then threw the woman off her bike. She struggled with him, at which point Young implied he had a gun and threatened to shoot her, St. Petersburg police said.

Young then got the bicycle and rode off. Police later found him at his home and the woman identified him as her attacker. The bike was also found, police said.

An arrest report indicates Young appeared to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Young was being held at the Pinellas County Jail Monday in lieu of $150,000 bail.

Two robberies were reported on the trail the prior weekend. In those cases, the robbers were described as teen boys.
