St. Petersburg pain clinic robbed after arrests made in latest robbery

ST. PETERSBURG — A pain management clinic was robbed Tuesday hours after police arrested two men in connection with the robbery of another pain clinic last week.

The latest robbery took place around 3 p.m. when St. Petersburg police said two men robbed the Pain Management-Open MRI-Clinic, 6705 38th Ave N.

Two men entered the clinic and demanded cash, police said, but not pills. One of them leapt the counter. Neither robber displayed a weapon, police said, but both men implied that they were armed. They escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Both robbers were described as black males in their late teens or early 20s. One was short with a thin build and long dreadlocks. The other was of medium height with a thin build, dressed in a black shirt, pants and hat.

Hours earlier, police arrested Kenny Tyrone Baxter, 24, of St. Petersburg and Stewart Decory Lucas, 28, of St. Petersburg in connection with the May 12 robbery of the St. Petersburg Pain Management and Urgent Care Clinic, 4900 33rd Ave. N.

The two robberies don't appear to be linked, police said.
