Port Richey man burned teen with cigarette, deputies say


Man arrested after three injured at home

A man was arrested Monday night after, deputies say, he went on a rampage injuring three people, including his wife and a 15-year-old.

During an argument about 10:45 p.m., Ricky Leon Traywick, 56, hit his wife and another person in the face with a shoe, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. Traywick grabbed a clothes iron and tried to hit the second victim with it but barely missed, the report states, then he struck a third victim, a 15-year-old boy, and put out a cigarette on the boy's face.

It's unclear what sparked the altercation.

The three victims and Traywick live in the same home at 11419 Fox Run, the report states. Traywick was arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse, aggravated assault and domestic battery. He remained in Land O'Lakes jail Tuesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
