Hillsborough deputies seek Sunoco robber

TAMPA — Deputies are asking for the public's help in their search for a man who robbed a Sunoco convenience store clerk at gunpoint early Monday.

At about 3:40 a.m., a young man with a handkerchief covering his face walked into the store at 14516 N 22nd St. in Tampa, pointed a gun at one of the clerks and said "give it up."

He fired a round into the floor, deputies say.

The clerk opened the register and the man took off with the money. He was last seen running west behind several businesses on Bearss Avenue.

Deputies describe the man as black, between 18 and 21 years old, about 5-foot-7 and about 150 pounds, with brown eyes. He was wearing a black New Era Blue Jays hat, a long-sleeved black shirt and light-colored cargo shorts with black or gray shoes and gloves.

Deputies ask that anyone with information call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
