Deputies have descriptions of suspected robbers in Hernando

SPRING HILL — Detectives continue to search for two suspects who robbed a man at gunpoint in front of a Spring Hill convenience store Saturday.

The man told deputies he was walking in the parking lot of Jiffy Food Store at 4132 Deltona Blvd., just south of Bay Drive, about 1:30 p.m. when two men approached him, according to Hernando Sheriff's Office news release. One of the men pulled a gun and demanded his wallet and money. The man complied and the suspects fled on foot, heading south through the alley behind the store.

One of the suspects is described as white, about 20 years old with short blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a light blue shirt and blue jeans, and had a spider web tattoo on the left side of his neck. He also had three teardrop tattoos under his left eye. Only one of the drops was colored in.

The other suspect is black, about 40 years old, bald and brown eyes. He was wearing a grey striped shirt and black pants, and had a tattoo of praying hands on his right forearm.

If you have information on the robbery or the suspects, call Detective Dustin Mormando at (352) 797-3728.
