St. Pete police arrest man on attempted murder charge

ST. PETERSBURG — Detectives arrested an 18-year-old man Thursday on an attempted murder charge stemming from a botched robbery in August.

Javorious Jarodrick Davis, of St. Petersburg, is accused of being one of three or four masked robbers who attacked a man as he sat in a car the morning of Aug. 15 at 3233 33rd Ave. N.

The man told police that one of the robbers shouted "give it up" as they approached, according to an arrest report. One of the robbers brandished a .45 caliber handgun.

The man in the car struggled with the gunman, exposing the robber's face in the process, police said. The robber then shot the man twice in the upper torso before the group fled.

Investigators later provided the victim with a lineup of photographs of possible suspects. He identified Davis as the man who shot him, police said.

Davis faces charges of attempted felony murder and attempted robbery with a firearm. He was held in the Pinellas County Jail Friday evening on $170,000 bail.
