Three men accused of sexually assaulting woman

NEW PORT RICHEY — Pasco deputies arrested three men Saturday on charges of sexual battery after a woman accused two of them of holding her down while another one raped her at a New Port Richey home.

Feliz Perez-Leon, 23, and Alejandro Perez-Leon, 27, allegedly brought the victim to a home at 3852 Haven Drive around 2:40 a.m., according to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Once the woman arrived at the house, the men forced her into a bedroom and took off her clothes.

The woman told deputies that Ricardo Perez, 28, and Alejandro Perez-Leon held her down on a bed while Feliz Perez-Leon forcibly had sex with her. She also accused Feliz Perez-Leon of punching her in the left temple.

The victim had injuries consistent with the sexual battery, according to the arrest report. She also was able to accurately describe the inside of the house to deputies.

Deputies also found the woman's bra on the bed and blood inside the bedroom consistent with a struggle.

All three men were arrested on a charge of sexual battery and were being held at the Pasco County Jail in Land O'Lakes in lieu of $150,000 bail.

    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.
