Woman arrested in Hudson attack

HUDSON — A 19-year-old woman is accused of luring an acquaintance near a car so that the driver could get out and rob the victim at gunpoint.

Alicia Lee Brown was charged Thursday with robbery with a deadly weapon or firearm. She has been in the Pasco jail since Feb. 17 on charges of failing to appear in court in a domestic battery case and violating her probation. The driver — a man accused of stealing the victim's wallet and cellphone — is still at large, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

The incident happened Feb. 2 near 13314 U.S. 19. The victim said he was riding home on his bicycle when the car pulled up behind him. Brown got out and asked the victim for a cigarette. Then the driver got out and pointed a semiautomatic gun at the victim, a report says. After robbing him, the attacker hit the victim in the head, the report says. Brown and the driver are both accused of kicking the victim "numerous times" while he was on the ground. The victim told investigators he suffered neck and head injuries.

Brown, 7200 Florestate Drive in Hudson, is being held in jail in lieu of $54,013 bail.
