Two men jailed after break-in, knife threat

Two men broke into a home, held a knife to a man's neck and demanded prescription medication, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

The incident happened at 3:30 p.m. Friday at a mobile home on Bolton Avenue in Hudson.

When two other people in the house tried to help the victim, the thieves punched them, a report states. The two suspects were arrested on charges of armed burglary and battery. Arrested were Tyler E. Potter, 19, of 15301 Bermondsey St. and Anthony R. Minervini, 21, of 9321 Bolton Ave. Both men were being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $150,150 bail. Minervini has served two stints in prison — totaling more than three years — for burglary and grand theft. He was released in July after serving his most recent sentence.

Teenager accused of molesting 6-year-old

A 15-year-old boy is accused of sexually abusing a 6-year-old boy. The molestation included an attempted rape, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The teenager's name is being withheld because of his age. The offense happened in January at a home in New Port Richey. The location of the offense and relationship of the teenager to the victim are not being released due to the nature of the charges.

The teenager, who is a student at River Ridge High School, was arrested Friday on a charge of capital sexual battery.
