ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for a man they say robbed a St. Petersburg convenience store Sunday afternoon.
Releasing surveillance video from L&W Food Market at 4059 5th Ave. N, police are hoping the public can help identify the suspect. He was seen entering the store about 3:30 p.m. and pointing a black semi-automatic handgun at the clerk, who handed over cash from the register. No getaway vehicle was seen.
While the video does not provide a view of the suspect's face, he is wearing a distinctive jacket with a large, white letter "S" over the left breast area.
The suspect was described as a black male between 18 to 25 years old, between 5 feet 6 and 5 feet 8, 155 to 175 pounds, wearing a gray hooded jacket with black sleeves, blue jeans and black and white sneakers. It appears he was wearing gloves.
Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Petersburg Police Department at (727) 893-7780 or the department's tip line at (727) 892-5000.
