Two men arrested after Tampa woman robbed, tied up

TAMPA — Police say a 19-year-old woman was tied up and robbed at gunpoint Monday afternoon after answering the door to men she thought were friends of her boyfriend.

Shon Ashley Runcie was alone at 5207 E 17th Ave. when two men knocked on the door about 1:20 p.m., police say.

Runcie let them inside and they quickly tied her up, held her at gunpoint and ransacked her home.

An arrest affidavit says the men were looking for money, drugs and guns. They took more than $300 from Runcie's wallet and two cell phones, according to the affidavit.

One of the cell phones had GPS, and police tracked it to 3508 N 22nd St., the home of 28-year-old Alexander Baez, where they found the gun used in the offense.

Police arrested Baez and Patrick J. Odor, 24, of 2132 W Marianna St., on charges of armed kidnapping, armed robbery, possessing a firearm while committing a felony and being a felon in possession of a weapon. (Click to see mugshots for Baez and Odor)

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  3. GOP senators blink on a big chance to repeal 'Obamacare'


    WASHINGTON — After seven years of emphatic campaign promises, Senate Republicans demonstrated Wednesday they don't have the stomach to repeal "Obamacare" when it really counts, as the Senate voted 55-45 to reject legislation undoing major portions of Barack Obama's law without replacing it.
