HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – A sexual predator has been arrested after a report of sexual battery from two different minors. Randy Akers, 60, was arrested in Hernando County by the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force following an in-depth investigation by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
During the investigation, detectives learned that Akers sexually battered a child between the ages of four and five years old, along with another eight-year-old child. The victims stated the abuse dates back as far as 2002.
Detectives believe Akers may have had access to more children and that they could have been victimized due to his involvement in a motorcycle club called Baggerz & Tailz.
Akers is known to the community as “Radical Randy” and the Battle of the Baggers Bike Shows owner.
