CLEARWATER – According to a Clearwater Police, a man arrested in April recently pleaded guilty to five counts of kidnapping and sexual battery and was sentenced to 25 years in jail.

He was also designated a sexual predator, the report said.

Larry Wayne Coburn Jr., 34, of Clearwater allegedly abducted a 45-year-old female victim at gunpoint on S. Myrtle Avenue at 3:38 a.m. April 25, according to a police report. He then drove her to Largo where he sexually battered her and eventually let her go. The victim called police, and the vehicle was spotted in Largo. The suspect fled on foot, the report said.

Around the same time, the Belleair Police Department said they had a second victim – a 51-year-old female – who was also sexually battered at gunpoint by the suspect.

“We were able to quickly identify the suspect and diverted every resource available to locating him and taking him into custody,” said Clearwater Police Chief Anthony Holloway in an April press release. “Apprehending him was a priority before he could hurt anyone else.”

Clearwater officers found Coburn on Ranchwood Drive about noon, where he was working for a lawn service.

He has an extensive criminal history of violent crimes and was on federal probation for a 2003 narcotics charge.
