Marshals Service posts billboards of teen wanted in Pinellas Trail attack

ST. PETERSBURG — The U.S. Marshals Service has posted several billboards throughout Tampa Bay announcing a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of a teenager accused of attacking a couple on the Pinellas Trail last month, police said.

According to St. Petersburg police, Germaine D. Small, 17, who goes by "Bolt," was one of two teens who attacked and robbed a couple cycling on the trail Feb. 1.

The teens took the couple's bikes and bags, and police said Small hit the woman in the face with a gun, cutting her and knocking out several teeth.

After the attack, Small and the other boy ran off, and police later recovered the belongings and bikes in the area of 18th Avenue S and 45th Street S. The gun has not been found.

Small is described as being 5 feet 6 and weighing 150 pounds with close-cut, clean-shaven hair.

The billboards are situated along highways and streets in the area, including at the intersection of Ulmerton Road and 49th Street N in Largo, on Interstate 275 in Pinellas and along the Veterans Expressway in Hillsborough.

Anyone with information on Small's whereabouts is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service at (727) 639-1167.
