Roosevelt Young - Repeat Sex Offender - Nabbed by Mom

Clearwater police say they arrested a 37-year-old man when he returned to a car he abandoned when a mother caught him having sex with her teenage daughter.

Roosevelt Young of 2419 44th St. S., St. Petersburg, has been charged with having sex with a minor.

He met with the 17-year-old girl at her home in Clearwater on Thursday to engage in sexual activity, said Clearwater public safety spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts.

Young, a registered sex offender, left in a hurry – without his car -- when the girl's mother came home, Watts said.

Young was being held at Pinellas County Jail. Bail was set at $10,000.

Police say there might be other victims and have requested that anyone with information call investigators at (727) 562-4080.
