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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    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.
