Deputies seek man accused of Dover armed robbery

DOVER — Deputies are seeking the public's help in identifying a man who held up the Prime Time Food Store Sunday night.

The man entered the shop at 3185 Dover Road N just after 9:30 p.m. brandishing a silver handgun. He confronted the 70-year-old cashier, Alexander Cherukatoor of Valrico.

The man demanded money and forced a customer in the store into a restroom, deputies said.

Cherukatoor handed over an undisclosed amount of money, and the suspect was last seen running south on Dover Road, deputies said.

Deputies said the robber is a black man of large build, about 6 feet tall, weighing 250 pounds, and was seen wearing gray and red gloves, a gray ski mask, dark blue hooded sweatshirt and gray sweatpants.

Investigators have asked anyone with information to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or the Tip Line at 1-800-873-8477.
