St. Pete man accused of sexually assaulting teen

ST. PETERSBURG — Police arrested a 24-year-old man they said sexually assaulted a teenager he met this week.

Alexander B. Cooper, of St. Petersburg, was booked Tuesday afternoon into the Pinellas County Jail on charges of sexual battery and violating probation in a 2012 grand theft case.

Police said Cooper had sex with a 16-year-old girl Monday night.

It was not immediately clear how Cooper met the girl, police said. But on Monday, the two arranged to meet at a Taco Bell on 34th Street. From there, they went to Cooper's home at 4180 1/2 Central Ave., Apt. A, where the girl said Cooper assaulted her.

Afterward, he walked her back to the restaurant.

The girl eventually told family members what happened and police were called.
