ZEPHYRHILLS — Police say two men purposely hit another car early this morning so they could rob the driver.

The incident happened at 6:17 a.m. on Fort King Road, north of North Avenue. Zephyrhills police say a dark blue Toyota pickup with a dented tailgate bumped the victim's vehicle. When the victim stopped to check for damage, a man got out of the pickup, displayed a weapon and demanded money.

Zephyrhills Police Capt. Robert McKinney said he could not comment on the type of weapon or gender and age of the victim. He said the robber stole the victim's cash.

The suspects are white males about 25 to 35 years old. One man was tall and thin. He wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans and white tennis shoes. He was missing two bottom front teeth.

The second suspect was short and hefty, about 5 foot 7 inches and 250 pounds. He wore a dark blue hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

McKinney asks anyone with information to call the police department at (813) 780-0050.
