PINELLAS PARK – The third teenage suspect wanted in connection with an attack of an 84-year-old Pinellas Park man and the theft of his vehicle was arrested Thursday night.

Jazmine Burney, 15, was arrested at her home, according to a press release from Pinellas Park police.

The second suspect, Xavier Peterson, 13, approached Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies to turn himself in around 11:35 p.m. April 2 and was then taken into custody by Pinellas Park police and transported to Pinellas Park PD where he was questioned.

According to Sgt. Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park police public information officer, Peterson denied having any part in the April 1 attack of Charles Clark, but he did admit to taking the man’s car. Police charged the teen with grand theft of a motor vehicle and transported to the juvenile assessment center.

Police took Peterson’s brother, Antonio Peterson, 16, into custody Wednesday evening. He was charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon.

Police believe the three teens were involved in an attempted robbery that occurred about 10 a.m. April 1 on 76th Avenue. Clark was exiting his car when he was attacked from behind. He tried to fight off the attackers and was subsequently stabbed. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released. He told police that the teens were trying to steal his car.

His car was stolen overnight between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. from in front of his residence on 76th Avenue. Police recovered it Wednesday morning in south St. Petersburg.

Geissenberger said the community was reaching out to assist the victim. Walker Ford is changing the locks on the vehicle at no charge. YoHo’s Collision Center provided free towing. John’s Key Shop replaced the locks on Clark’s residence.
