Bricks thrown through Port Richey car windows

Someone has made a habit of throwing bricks through car windows in the Port Richey area, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies on Sunday investigated five different incidents in which objects were thrown at vehicles.

The most recent happened at Golden Acres Plaza on Little Road and Fox Hollow Drive. A worker cleaning the parking lot said he discovered a Ford Taurus with a brick through the back window.

Also, a babysitter on Fox Hollow Drive said she heard a loud noise early Sunday and assumed it was a newspaper hitting a car. But she later discovered a brick went through her car window, causing about $500 in damage.

Other incidents were reported elsewhere on Fox Hollow, Rainbow Lane and Inglewood Avenue.

Alabama man stabbed in

morning parking lot fight

PORT RICHEY _ A man was stabbed after a fight broke out as three friends, all black, attempted to leave Tequila Bay bar on Little Road early Sunday, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. During the fight, one of the men said he heard an assailant say "white power."

The men said they were leaving the parking lot at about 2:25 a.m. when their car was surrounded by five or eight white males.

One suspect reached through the driver's side front window, according to the report, and hit a 31-year-old man from Montgomery, Ala. The men inside the car got out and a fight ensued. A 20-year-old man, also from Montgomery, was hit in the head with a beer bottle, the report said.

At one point, the report said, one of the assailants pulled out a knife and stabbed the 31-year-old in the upper right rib cage.

The assailants then fled on foot toward Ridge Road, and the three men drove themselves to North Bay Hospital.

The 20-year-old was treated and released but the 31-year-old was held due to the seriousness of the stab wound, according to the report. The third man, a 43-year-old from Port Richey, was not hurt.

The Sheriff's Office is investigating.

The Times is withholding the names of the three men because the men they fought are at large.
