Police look for men who robbed Tampa man in his apartment

TAMPA — Police were looking for two men early Tuesday who broke into a man's apartment and held him at gunpoint before fleeing with cash.

The men broke in to 27-year-old Darren Young's apartment, at the Arbor Ponds complex at 2901 N Dale Mabry Highway, sometime before midnight, police said. When Young arrived home about 12:15 a.m., they confronted him with handguns and demanded his money.

The two ransacked Young's apartment, then punched him in the face, knocking out two of his teeth before running away, police said.

Young ran to a nearby convenience store to call 911.

Police continued to look for the men early Tuesday. Further details of the crime were not immediately available.
